THREE WHEELS ON MY WAGON
(Bob Hilliard; Burt Bacharach)

Three wheels on my wagon,
And I'm still rolling along
The Cherokees are chasing me
Arrows fly, right on by
But I'm singing a happy song

I'm singing a higgity, haggity, hoggety, high
Pioneers, they never say die
A mile up the road there's a hidden cave
And we can watch those Cherokees
Go galloping by

SPOKEN: "George, they're catching up to us!"
"Get back in the wagon woman!"

Two wheels on my wagon,
And I'm still rolling along
Them Cherokees are after me
Flaming spears, burn my ears
But I'm singing a happy song

I'm singing a higgity, haggity hoggety, high
Pioneers, they never say die
Half a mile up the road there's a hidden cave
And we can watch those Cherokees
Go galloping by

SPOKEN: "Duh, Paw? Are you sure this is the right road?"
"Will you hush up? You and your maps!"

One wheel on my wagon,
And I'm still rolling along
Them Cherokees after me
I'm all in flames, at the reins
But I'm singing a happy song

I'm singing a higgity, haggity hoggety, high
Pioneers, they never say die
Right around that turn there's a hidden cave
And we can watch those Cherokees
Go galloping by

SPOKEN: "George? Should I get the bag of beads and trinkets?"
"Woman, I know what I'm doing!"

No wheels on my wagon,
So I'm not rolling along
The Cherokees captured me
They look mad, things look bad
But I'm singing a happy song

SPOKEN: "C'mon all you Cherokees sing along with me!"

Recorded by the New Christy Minstrels

Three wheels on my wheels of car three on my car
and me are moveless rolling along
Cherokees me hunt that the arrows fly,
correct above of,
but I sing a lucky song

I sing higgity, haggity,
pioneers hoggety and upper parts, never say her that it gives upward
thousand from the stencil A to the road a hidden cave,
and we this Cherokees to observe can to go galloping through

SPOKEN: "George are sticking on it up to us!" "you return to the car woman!"

Two wheels on my car
and me it is moveless rolling the length that of them
Cherokees are after me
the lighting up lances, burn my ears,
but I I sing a lucky song

sing higgity, haggity hoggety, high
pioneers, say her never
that half of thousands stencil gives a hidden cave upward to the road by it,
and we this Cherokees to observe can, galloping through

SPOKEN to be gone: "Duh, leg? Its you you this is safer the straight road?" "silence will waive themselves you? It and your maps!"

A wheel on my car
and me are moveless rolling along it
Cherokees, after I am
I everything in flames, to which zuegeln,
but I sing a lucky song that
I higgity sing haggity hoggety, high
pioneers, her legend never that
just from stencil around this revolution it gives a hidden cave,
and we this Cherokees to observe can go, galloping through

SPOKEN: "George? If I the bag of the beads and the Nippsachen receive?" "I, which I make!, know woman"

Wheel on my car,
thus me does not roll along
Cherokees me taken prisoner that they seem moved,
the bad of view of things, but I am, which sing a
SPEAKING lucky song: "it my whole that you sing Cherokees with me!"

Oops wrong thread.

I thought the wagon only had three wheels at start the beginning of the song. Maybe it was made by Reliant* ;-)

Memories of children's telly on the BBC in the mid/late sixties with cartoons of each verse!

From the same era and in the same format was 'When I first came to this land'

All the best
