There are many variations of this song. People also sing the verses in different orders depending on the version you sing.


Here's a version that Heather Dixon sent us and sang for us on the mp3:

Fish and chips and vinegar, vinegar.
Fish and chips and vinegar, pepper, pepper, hot!

It's cold in the winter, it's cold in the fall.
It's cold in the summer, but it doesn't matter at all.

Don't put your trash in my backyard, my backyard, my backyard.
Don't put your trash in my backyard, my backyard's full!

One bottle pop, two bottle pop, three bottle pop, four.
Five bottle pop, six bottle pop, seven bottle pop, more.
