“Two Dead Boys”
An old folk rhyme

Ladies and gentlemen, hoboes and tramps,
Cross-eyed mosquitoes and bow-legged ants,
I come before you to stand behind you,
To tell you something I know nothing about.
One bright day in the middle of the night,
Two dead boys got up to fight.
Back-to-back they faced one another,
Drew their swords and shot each other.
Boom-boom, what a crazy world, crazy…
Boom-boom, what a crazy world, CRAZY!
One was blind and the other couldn’t see,
So they chose a dummy for a referee.
A blind man went to see fair play,
A dumb man went to shout “hooray!”
Boom-boom, what a crazy world, crazy…
Boom-boom, what a crazy world, CRAZY!
A deaf policeman heard the noise,
And came and shot the two dead boys.
A paralyzed donkey walking on by,
Kicked the copper right in the eye,
Boom-boom, what a crazy world, crazy…
Boom-boom, what a crazy world, CRAZY!
Sent him through a rubber wall,
Into a dry ditch and drowned them all.
Now, if you don’t believe this lie is true,
Just ask the blind man — he saw it, too!
Boom-boom, what a crazy world, crazy…
Boom-boom, what a crazy world, CRAZY!
