: I think this is the older version of the song you are looking for:

: As I was walking down the street
: a billboard caught my eye
: The advertisements written there
: would make you laugh and cry
: The rain and hail came down that day
: and washed it half away
: And what was left upon that sign
: would make that billboard say:

: Come smoke a Coca-cola
: Chew catsup cigarettes
: See Shirley Temple wrestle
: with a box of Oysterettes
: Pork and beans will meet tonight
: in a finish fight
: Baby Ruth will lecture on Seporia tonight.
: Bay Rum is good for horses
: It is the best in town.
: Castoria cures the measles
: If you pay $5 down.
: Teeth extracted without pain
: for a half a dime.
: Ingersolls are selling a little out of time.

: Chew Wrigley’s for that headache
: Take Campbell’s for that cough
: There’s going to be a swimming meet
: in the village watertrough
: Buy a case of gingerale
: it makes the best of broth
: Shinola sure to curl your hair
: and not to take it off.

: Match in the gas tank boom-boom.

: Explanatory notes:
: Oysterettes
: the original oyster cracker.
: Seporia
: a disease that causes leaf spots on plants including celery and dogwood.
: Bay Rum
: a line of products including Exfoliating Bar Soap, Shaving Soap, Aftershave Balm, Cologne and Moisturizing Creme.
: Ingersolls
: clocks made from about 1890 until World War II by The Waterbury Clock Company in Waterbury, Connecticut. The company was the forerunner of Timex.
: Castoria
: a mild stomach remedy for children. It was said to relieve constipation, flatulence and diarrhea.
: Shinola
: a combination lotion and cleaner to keep shoes soft and white.
