: 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.

: If you pay $5 down.
: Teeth extracted without pain
: for a half a dime.

: 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
