: : CAN ANYONE HELP WITH THESE LYRICS? MY 88 YEAR OLD DAD WANTS TO SING THIS FAVORITE CAMP SONG AT A TALENT SHOW. HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED ASAP Does anyone know the billboard song that goes:
: : "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!
: All I remember is "Ask the man who owns one to take home an Arrow shirt/teeth extracted without pain for the price of half a dime/there'll be a sale on oboes at a quarter after nine . . ."
: I remember a different one that went..."As I was walking down the street at billboard caught my eye/The advertisements written there would make you laugh or cry/(something here about the wind and rain)/and as I read the things they said why this is what I saw////Smoke coca-cola cigarettes, drink wrigeley's spearmint beer/ken-l-ration dog food keeps your wife's complexion clear/eat chocolate covered mothballs, they always satisfy/brush your teeth with lifebouy soap and watch the suds go by///As I recovered from my shock I went upon my way/I'd gone no farther than a block when there to my dismay/Another billboard caught my eye just like the one before/And as I read the things it said why this is what I saw///Texaco's the beauty cream that's used by all the stars..." and this is where I forget.
