Oh where, Oh where ish mine little dog gone;
Oh where can he be.
His ears cut short und his tail cut long:
Oh where, Oh where ish he.

Tra la la la la la la la la la la,
La la la la la la la la la la,
Tra la la la la la la la la la la,
Tra la la la la la la.

2. I loves mine lager' tish very good beer,
Oh where, Oh where can he be.
But mit no money I cannot drink here.
Oh where, oh where ish he.

3. Across the ocean in Garmanie,
Oh where can he be.
Der deitchers dog ish der best compagnie.
Oh where, Oh where ish he.
Chorus:

4. Un sasage ish goot, bolonie of course,
Oh where can he be.
Dey makes um mit dog und dey makes em mit horse,
