    Lyrics

    Oh, oh, many years ago
    Lived the wife of happy Rip Van Winkle
    Oh, oh, she sent him away
    As the little stars began to twinkle
    All that he had he had under his hat
    She was glad to see him go
    So over the hills he went
    Left her without a cent
    One thing I'm anxious to know

    Who paid the rent for Mrs. Rip Van Winkle
    When Rip Van Winkle went away?
    And though he slept for twenty years
    Who was it kissed away her tears?

    She had no friends in the place
    No one to embrace
    But the landlord always left her with a smile on his face
    Oh, who paid the rent for Mrs. Rip Van Winkle
    When Rip Van Winkle went away?

    C'mon, tell me!

    Who paid the rent for Mrs. Rip Van Winkle
    When Rip Van Winkle went away?
    And though he slept for twenty years
    Who was it kissed away her tears?

    She never married again
    She was lonesome but then
    You'll always find a rooster
    Lookin' round for a hen

    Who paid the rent for Mrs. Rip Van Winkle
    When Rip Van Winkle went away?
