This is a cumulative folk song with a simple structure built by progressive additions of words/phrases so that each verse is longer than the previous one. Cumulative songs are popular for group singing, as they require little memory skills and can become a kind of game.

It seems that some version of this song dates back to 1913, while there is a well known recording from Lonzo & Oscar (1947). A version of the lyrics is included in the 1932 songbook  “The Frank C. Brown Collection of North Carolina Folklore“.

Lyrics

There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea
There’s a hole, there’s a hole
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea

There’s a log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There’s a log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There’s a hole, there’s a hole
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea

There’s a bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There’s a bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There’s a hole, there’s a hole
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea

There’s a Frog on the bump, on the log, in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There’s a Frog on the bump, on the log, in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There’s a hole, there’s a hole
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea

There’s a wart on the frog, on the bump ….  in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There’s a wart on the frog, on the bump ….  in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There’s a hole, there’s a hole
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea

There’s a fly on the wart, on the frog …  in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There’s a fly on the wart, on the frog …  in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There’s a hole, there’s a hole
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea

There’s a flea on the fly, on the wart …  in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There’s a flea on the fly, oon the wart …  in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There’s a hole, there’s a hole
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea

There’s a smile on the flea, on the fly … in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There’s a smile on the flea, on the fly … in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There’s a hole, there’s a hole
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea
