THREE BILLY GOATS GRUFF (Frank Luther, based on the traditional Norwegian fairy tale) Frank Luther - 1947 This is the story of the three billy goats Gruff On a bluff, on a bluff, there lived three billy goats Gruff Little billy goat, middle billy goat, great big billy goat Gruff Every day, every day, they'd run and jump and play Little billy goat, middle billy goat, great big billy goat Gruff They'd run and run, and run and run, and run and run and run They'd hop and hop, and hop and hop, you'd think they'd never stop On a bluff, on a bluff, there lived three billy goats Gruff Little billy goat, middle billy goat, great big billy goat Gruff Across the river bridge was a meadow full of green, green grass Under the bridge there lived a big, bad troll And all day long he'd sit under the bridge and sing his bad troll song I'm a troll, fol-dee-rol, I'm a troll, fol-dee-rol I'm a troll, fol-dee-rol, fol-dee-rol-dee-rullee I have three heads and I have three hats I have three chins and I have three cats I have six eyes and I have six ears When I cry, I cry six tears One day the three billy goats Gruff eat the last of the grass on their bluff So, they decided to go over the bridge to the green, green meadow With the red, red roses, where they could eat the green, green grass Until they'd nearly burst So, little billy goat Gruff started trip-trap, trip-trap Over the rickety-rackety bridge Trip-trap, trip-trap, hop and skip, hop and skip But just when he reached the middle of the bridge The big, bad troll stuck his head up and said "Who's that trip-trapping over my bridge" Little billy goat Gruff said, "It is I, little billy goat Gruff" The big, bad troll said, "I'm a troll, fol-dee-rol, I'm a troll, fol-dee-rol I'm a troll, fol-dee-rol and I'll eat you for supper" Little billy goat gruff said, "Oh, Mister Toll, I'm so little I wouldn't make even a sandwich for you Wait for my brother who's coming right behind He's much bigger than I am" Well, the big bad troll said who would So, little billy goat Gruff went trip-trap, trip-trap Over the rickety-rackety bridge Trip-trap, trip-trap, hop and skip, hop and skip Clippity-clop, hoppity-hop over the rickety bridge When little billy goat Gruff was safely across the bridge Middle billy goat Gruff started trip-trap, trip-trap Over the rickety-rackety bridge Trip-trap, trip-trap, hop and skip, hop and skip But just when he reached the middle of the bridge The big, bad troll stuck his head up and said "Who's that trip-trapping over my bridge" The goat said, "It is I, middle billy goat Gruff" The troll said, "I'm a troll, fol-dee-rol, I'm a troll, fol-dee-rol I'm a troll, fol-dee-rol and I'll eat you for supper" Middle billy goat Gruff said, "Oh, Mister Troll, I'm so little I wouldn't make even a mouthful for you Wait for my brother who's coming right behind He's much bigger than I am" The big bad troll said who would So, middle billy goat Gruff went trip-trap, trip-trap Over the rickety-rackety bridge Trip-trap, trip-trap, hop and skip, hop and skip Clippity-clop, hippity-hop over the rickety bridge When middle billy goat Gruff was safely over the bridge The great big billy goat Gruff started trip-trap, trip-trap Over the rickety-rackety bridge Tripp-trapp, tripp-trapp, hop and skip, hop and skip But just when he reached the middle of the bridge The big, bad troll stuck his head up and said "Who's that trip-trapping over my bridge" The goat said, "It is I, great big billy goat Gruff" The troll said, "I'm a troll, fol-dee-rol, I'm a troll, fol-dee-rol I'm a troll, fol-dee-rol and I'll eat you for supper" But great big billy goat Gruff said, "Oh, no you won't, Mister Toll" And great big billy goat Gruff put his head down, "Ba-a-a-a-a" He put his horns out, "Ba-a-a-a-a", and he ran clickety-clackety Rickety-lackety, slam bang and he hit that big, bad Troll And knocked him over the bridge, over the bushes, Over the trees, over the hills, over the highest mountains So, great big billy goat Gruff went trip-trap, trip-trap Over the rickety-rackety bridge Trip-trap, trip-trap, hop and skip, hop and skip Clippity-clop, hippity-hop over the rickety bridge And so the three billy goats Gruff were over in the green, green meadow With the red, red roses, eating the green, green grass until they nearly burst And the big bad Troll never bothered them again And they're the happiest billy goats Gruff you ever saw Every day, every day, they'd run and jump and play Little billy goat, middle billy goat, great big billy goat Gruff (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2014)
