Lyr Req: Ho hum the tune is done

I remember this song from when I was little and it went like this.

Grandma had a Billy goat
She had it disinfected
It could have slept in grandpa's bed
But the Billy Goat Objected

Ho Hum the tune is done
The words don't mean a thing
Isn't that a silly song
for anyone to sing"

I googled it and only came up with some Snow White Lyrics, but these ones were not in that rendition.

I am looking for other verses if anyone can help.

I thought it was "the tune is dumb, the words don't mean a thing". Pinoccio springs to mind - got no strings to hold me down etc.

probably from the Snow White song - I imagine there are lots of verse out there people made up because they only remembered the chorus:

The Dwarf's Yodel Song (The Silly Song)
Music: Frank Churchill
Lyrics: Larry Morey
Performed by: [Dwarfs]

Yodel: Ho-la-la-ee-ay Ho-la-la-ee-ay
Ho-la-la-ee-ay-ee-la-ee-ay-ee-lee-ay
Ho-la-la-ee-ay Ho-la-la-ee-ay
Ho-la-la-ee-ay-ee-la-lee-ay-lee-o-lee-ay (repeat)

I'd like to dance and tap my feet
But they won't keep in rhythm
You see, I washed them both today
And I can't do nothing with 'em

*Chorus
Ho hum the tune is dumb
The words don't mean a thing
Isn't this a silly song for anyone to sing?

I chased a polecat up a tree
Way out on upon a limb And when he got the best of me
I got the worst of him

*(Chorus) (Yodel, etc.)
