The way I know it is thus:
As I was walking down the street one dark and dreary day,
I came upon a billboard and much to my dismay
the sign was torn and tattered, from the storm the night before,
the wind and rain had done a job and this is what I saw:
smoke Coka-cola cigarettes, drink Wrigley's spearment beer
Ken-l- ration dog food, makes your complexion clear
all doctors say that babies should smoke until they're three
and people over 65 should bathe in Lipton Tea
in a brand new Frigadaire
learn to play piano in your winter underwear
: : : 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!
