Lyrics

Why isn’t your nose twelve inches long?
Why would that be so very, very wrong?
Why isn’t your nose twelve inches long?
‘Cause then it would be a foot!
Ha!
Get it? Get it?
It’ll make you laugh if you let it.
Get it? Got it!
‘Cause then it would be a foot!

What time is it when the clock strikes thirteen?
Isn’t that the strangest thing you’ve ever seen?
What time is it when the clock strikes thirteen?
It’s time to get a new clock!
Ha!
Get it? Get it?
It’ll make you laugh if you let it.
Get it? Got it!
It’s time to get a new clock!

A riddle is a question with a joke at the end.
You can tell it to your cousin, you can tell it to a friend.
You can tell it to your dog, or your little rubber ducky
But they probably won’t guess it... unless they’re really really lucky!

What’s the hardest thing about learning how to skate?
And you’re going ‘round in circles when you’re trying to go straight?
What’s the hardest thing about learning how to skate?
The hardest thing is the ground!
Ha!
Riddles, riddles
Fun for adults and kiddles
Why does a fireman wear red suspenders?
So his pants don’t fall down when he’s laughing at a riddle!

(spoken/rapped)

I like telling riddles when I’m staying up all night.
I like telling riddles when I’m turning out the light.

I like telling riddles when I’m climbing up a tree.
I like telling riddles when I’m swimming in the sea.

I like telling riddles when I’m flying through the air.
I like telling riddles when I’m running from a bear.

I like telling riddles when I’m jumping on my bed.
I like telling riddles when I’m standing on my head.

I like telling riddles when I ride a kangaroo.
I like telling riddles and I’ll bet that you do, too.

I like telling riddles when I’m rolling on the floor.
I like telling riddles, but I don’t know any more.
