: : "As I was walking down the street a billboard caught my eye...the advertisements written make you want to laugh and cry. The wind and raind came up that night and washed the billboard 'way.
: : (the other half remaining???) would make it seem to say "smoke a coca cola, tomota catsup cigarettes, castoria kills the measles...just pay $5 down..overcoats are selling out a nickel at a time...."
: : THANKS!
We just went over this in school and i wrote the whole song down (homework). Well any ways i was hoping you could tell me when the song was written if i gave you the words.
Alright here it goes!
As I was walking down the street,
A billboard caught my eye.
and what was on that billboard will make you laugh and cry.
The wind and rain had come that day and washed it half away
And what was on that billboard was what i have to say
Come smoke a Coca-Cola
drink Ketchup cigarettes
see lillian russell wrestle with a box of oysterettes
Meet pork and beans tonight in their final fight
and john browns lecture on polio right
Bay rum is good for horses
it is the best in town
Castor oil cures the measles pay five dollars down
teeth extracted without pain for a half a dime
big bens are selling now a little out of time
