"Do Your Ears Hang Low?" is a children's song that is often sung in schools and at camps. It is believed that the melody of this song was taken from the song "Turkey in the Straw." The earliest known version is "Do Your Balls Hang Low", collected in 1941 by Vance Randolph, but not printed by him until 1992 in the book "Randolph, Roll Me in Your Arms". This version is listed in the Roud Folk Song Index under a separate number, 10259. Other versions printed shortly afterwards would suggest that this a rather rude wartime soldiers' song that has made its way into other circles: rugby singing, campfire singing.
