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.
