    Burl Ives - The Donut Song

    cho: When you walk the streets you'll have no cares
    If you walk the lines and not the squares
    As you go through life make this your goal
    Watch the donut, not the hole.

    It's written on the rainbow, in letters made of gold
    Written on the rainbow, there's wisdom to behold
    My friend the little sparrow flew
    Close enough to see
    Written on a rainbow is this philosophy.

    (Repeat verse)
    Little angels wrote it, so folks on earth would know

    (Repeat Chorus two times)

    I'm off to jolly England where
    Bulldogs all wear pants
    Off to Pago Pago where alligators dance
    My friend the little sparrow will
    Take me where he flies
    Even to the rainbow to read with my own eyes

    (Chorus) (Repeat First Verse)
    This song was submitted on December 21st, 2005.

      This is one o my favorite children's songs from a Burl Ives album. It is about teaching concentration.....keeping your mind on what matters and off of what doesn't...."watch donut, not the hole"...as a way of living our life.
