Subject: Lyr Add: The Raccoons Had a Party

The holiday muse has struck again as my thoughts turned to what kind of party might be happening in our old kitchen at Robinhood Farm.

By Charlie Ipcar, 11/18/21
Tune after “Shafted in Shaftsburg”
Key: C (5/G)

The Raccoons Had a Party

G
The raccoons had a party,
-------C------------------G
They had a glorious spree;
-------------------------------
They booted up Grubhub
--------A-------------D
And ordered K-F-C;
-------G
They poured out apple cider,
-------C---------------------G
And sliced up pumpkin pie;
--------------------------E
The raccoons had a party --
-------A-------D-------G
That no one can de-ny!
--------------------------E
The raccoons had a party --
-------A-------D-------G
That no one can de-ny!

Now Rocky Raccoon he was there
And he really had great fun;
Swinging from the chandelier,
And bouncing off his buns;
He moon-walked ‘cross the table,
Then backflipped to the floor;
The raccoons had a party --
Who could ask for more? (REF)

Roxie Raccoon she was there
And she really was a sight;
As she shimmied on the counter top
And then took off in flight;
She landed on the rocking chair
Which tipped o’er in a crash,
The raccoons had a party --
And it really was a smash! (REF)



Now ol’ Zip Coon he was there,
With a banjo on his knee,
Strumming up “Soldier’s Joy”
And “Let My People Free”;
He played “Cooney in the Hollar”
And then led “Cluck Ol’ Hen”;
The raccoons had a party --
They thought would never end! (REF)

Black Jack Davey he was there,
With a drumstick in each paw;
He was keeping time on the tabletop,
The funniest thing you ever saw;
He flipped one drumstick overhead,
And caught it in his teeth,
The raccoons had a party --
That defied belief! (REF)

And Suzie Q she was there,
She sang of many things;
Of shoes, and ships, and sealing wax,
Of cabbages and kings,
And why the sea is boiling hot,
And whether pigs had wings;
The raccoons had a party --
It was the damnest thing! (REF)

And when the party was over,
Everyone confessed,
The music was exquisite,
But the goodies were the best;
And as they left the kitchen,
One turned around and said,
“The raccoons had a party --
A party to wake the dead!”
Yes, “The raccoons had a party --
A party to wake the dead!”

Thanks, cnd.

We used to have a pet raccoon for a while at the Farm and learned a lot from him. As for singing, he preferred to croon when he was very happy.

Them damn racoons get muddy footprints all over my car. I rarely see them, but they sure like to make a mess of my car.

Raccoons, Joe, just have no respect!

If we didn't have a good security cam at the Farm kitchen we'd never know what they were up to.
