As : : : : 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 advertisementwritten there would make you laugh and cry. The wind and rain had come that night and washed it half away, and what was left upon that sign would make that billboard say, "come, smoke a coca cola, chew ketchup cigarettes, watch Bridgette Bardo wrestle, with a box of horseshoeettes, pork and beans will meet tonight, in a finish fight, JFK will lecture on ivory soap tonight. Bayrum is good for horses, it is the best in town, castoria kills the measles...you pay $5 down..teeth extracted without pay, price a half a dime, overcoats are selling a gallon 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.
