“Up At the Knob”
(sung to the tune of "Up On The Housetop")
(words by: Kathy Bish)

Version 1: If Phil does not see his shadow

Up at the Knob the groundhogs pause
 Sitting up and showing claws.
 Is there a shadow her today?
 If not spring is on the way.

 Cheer, Cheer, Cheer
 Spring is here!
 Cheer, Cheer, Cheer
 Spring is here!
 Up at the Knob it is so clear
 We're waiting for Springtime to appear!

Version 2: If Phil sees his shadow

Up at the Knob the groundhogs pause
 Sitting up and showing claws.
 "I see my shadow." says old Phil
 Six more weeks of winter chill.

 Boo, hoo, hoo,
 We're so blue!
 Boo, hoo, hoo,
 We're so blue!
 Up at the Knob when shadows come
 Six more weeks till we have sun!

Gobbler‟s Knob
(Tune: Jingle Bells [words by Kathy Bish])
Gobbler‟s Knob, Gobbler‟s Knob, Home of Punxsy Phil.
If his shadow he does see we‟ll have more winter still.
Gobbler‟s Knob, Gobbler‟s Knob, Home of Punxsy Phil.
If no shadow does appear, we‟ll cheer, oh yes we will!

Old Phil, The Punxsy Groundhog”
(Tune:  Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer [words by Kathy Bish])
Old Phil, the Punxsy Groundhog,
has a very special job;
He watches for his shadow,
ev‟ry year on Gobbler‟s Knob.
Thousands of screaming people,
make the trek this time each year.
Up to the Knob they travel,
waiting for Phil to appear.
If his shadow he does see, winter‟s here to stay.
If no shadow does appear,
that means spring will soon be here.
Then all the screaming people,
go upon their merry way,
Giving Phil peace and quiet,
„till next year on Groundhog Day!
