When Sammy Put the Paper on the Wall
Children's Song

When Sammy put the paper on the wall
(On the wall),
He put all the paper on the wall.
He papered up the stairs.
He papered all the chairs.
He even put a border on grandma's shawl.

When Sammy put the paper on the wall
(On the wall),
He put all the paper on the wall.
Let us all stick together
Like birds of a feather
Since Sammy put the paper on the wall
(On the wall)!

Here's another version of the last verse:

When Sammy put the paper on the wall
(On the wall),
He poured a pot of paste upon us all.
Now we're all stuck together
Like birds of a feather
Since Sammy put the paper on the wall
(On the wall)!

Notes

Mary Jamieson wrote: "It was fun to find the song 'When Sammy Put the Paper on the Wall' on your site - but i remember the lines a little differently - Instead of the line 'he put all the paper on the wall' it should read:
'He put the parlor paper in the hall."

Thank you for bringing back so many fun memories with your website! -Mary Jamieson"
