Baboons running through the turnip patch.
They’re running swiftly they’re hard to catch.
Rain pounding on a lid of a garbage can
The baboons are running as fast as they can.
Roosters riding on the backs of baboons
Children weeping while watching cartoons.
A dainty lady eating a dish of prunes
All this happening in the afternoon.
Turn up the radio nice and loud.
Throwing confetti on an angry crowd
They are angry because you turned your radio up too high
Someone’s mother is baking an apple pie.
Someone’s son is eating apple pie
Someone’s uncle is eating jam on rye
Someone’s getting fat we know why
“Most of the nation”, you sigh.
