“On Top Of Spaghetti” is a ballad and children’s song sung to the tune of the traditional “On Top of Old Smoky”. It is about the story of a meatball that fell of the pile of spaghetti and rolled away – and all that happened “when somebody sneezed”.
The best-known performance of the song is the one by Tom Glazer with the Do-Re-Mi Children’s Chorus in 1963.

On top of spaghetti all covered with cheese
I lost my poor meatball when somebody sneezed
It rolled off the table, it rolled on the floor
And then my poor meatball rolled out of the door
It rolled in the garden and under a bush
And then my poor meatball was nothing but mush.
The mush was as tasty as tasty could be,
And early next summer it grew to a tree.
The tree was all covered with beautiful moss
It grew great big meatballs and tomato sauce.
So if you eat spaghetti all covered with cheese,
Hold on to your meatball and don’t ever sneeze.
