Humorous Version (last verse)[edit]

Listen Boy Scouts, heed the warning
In this tragic tale of mine,
Artificial respiration,
Would have saved my Clementine!

Slightly different verses from other versions[edit]

Walking lightly as a fairy,
Though her shoes were number nine
Sometimes tripping, lightly skipping,
Lovely girl, my Clementine.
There's a churchyard on a hillside,
Where the flowers bloughs entwine,
They grow roses amongst the posies,
Fertilized by Clementine
In a church yard, by the hillside,
There grow roses well entwined,
And some posies 'mongst the roses,
Sprung to life by Clementine
How I missed her! How I missed her,
How I missed my Clementine,
But I kissed her little sister,
I forgot my Clementine.
Thought I missed her, til I kissed her
Little sister that one time
Now I hardly think about her
My poor darling, Clementine
I'm so lonely, lost without her,
Wish I'd had a fishing line,
Which I might have cast about her,
Might have saved my Clementine.
In my dreams she still doth haunt me,
Robed in garments soaked with brine,
Then she rises from the waters,
And I kiss my Clementine
Now you kids [or Scouts] may learn the moral
Of this little tale of mine
Artificial respiration
Would have saved my Clementine
