: 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.

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...."
