Here is a Youtube video.

They say that Mary had a lamb
Its fleece was oh so white
And everywhere that Mary went
The fleas would always bite

Oh! It ain't no fault of mine
Oh! It ain't no fault of mine
If the garlic makes the baby strong
It ain't no fault of mine

My sister tore her stockings once
The poor girl in her woes
She ran out in the garden
And she took the garden hose

Oh! It ain't no fault of mine
Oh! It ain't no fault of mine
If the duck goes on a wild goose chase
It ain't no fault of mine

A racoon has a bushy tale
A possum's tail is bare
A rabbit has no tail at all
It's just a little hare

Oh! It ain't no fault of mine
Oh! It ain't no fault of mine
If a dog fish never raises pups
It ain't no fault of mine

When Crusoe's good Man Friday fell
The fall gave him a fright
It was the very first time
Friday fell on Sunday night

Oh! It ain't no fault of mine
Oh! It ain't no fault of mine
If a porcupine don’t find no pork
It ain't no fault of mine

I want to have these shoes soled
I say shoe maker please
Next day he said he sold them to
A guy across the street

Oh! It ain't no fault of mine
Oh! It ain't no fault of mine
If you can't get beer at temple bar
It ain't no fault of mine

When Ginsberg followed his peaches home
He heard old Doctor Blair
Say Mr Peach, allow me to
Present you with a pear

Oh! It ain't no fault of mine
Oh! It ain't no fault of mine
If the man who steals your watch, gets time
It ain't no fault of mine
