Let's meet Colleen Hannafin,
Who in the world is she?
She's a mighty fine girl from a mighty fine world
And a mighty fine girl is she.

And she's from wayo, wayo, wayo over there
She's from wayo, wayo, wayo over there.

Let's meet Uncle Squaty,
Who in the world is he? 
He's a mighty fine man from a mighty fine land
And a mighty fine man is he.
