Verse 1:
We eat cheese fondue, a strudel or two
Sometimes we have schnitzel with noodles
We love to ski like the English love tea
And the Frenchman love walking their poodles
With their blonde hair in braids
The pretty Swiss maids
All yodel while dance the Polka
We don't know how but when they milk the cows
It comes out as hot chocolate mocha

chorus:
Oh the valleys are low
Cuz the mountains are high
We're riding a moose
And we don't know why
We're happy as clams with a clock and a pie
Here in Switzerland
Yodelay-ee-olaydee-oh-hoo
Yodelay-ee-olaydee-oh-hoo
Yodelay-dee-olaydee-ohlaydee-yoladee
Yodelo-dee-yo-oh-lady-hoo

Verse 2:
We greet every morn when the Alpine horn
Bellows it's big belching horn tone
And if per chance there's an avalanche
We'll tunnel out snacking on snow cones
We work and we play the Switzerland way
In shorts that we call leiderhosen
We're gay all the while cuz it's hard not to smile
When even your cheekbones are frozen

chorus:

Verse 3:
On white shining snow slip sliding we go
On a sled that we call a toboggan
Everyone has oodles of fun
Just be careful of crackin' your noggin
So take out your maps and feather your caps
If it's an adventure your needin'
The cable car ride can take you so high
Your nostrils might even start bleedin'
The altitude leaves us confused
Sometimes we think we're from Sweden

New chorus:
Oh the mountains are high cuz the valleys are low
It's summertime now so let's bring on the snow
Cuz we start to sweat when it's thirty below
Here in Switzerland
Yodelay-ee-olaydee-oh-hoo
Yodelay-ee-olaydee-oh-hoo
Yodelay-dee-olaydee-ohlaydee-yoladee
Yodelo-dee-yo-oh-lady-hoo
Here in Switzerland
