Nonsense Song No. 1

It was midnight on the ocean 
Not a street car was in sight. 
The sun was shining brightly; 
And it rained all day that night.

'Twas a summer's night in winter 
And the rain was snowing fast. 
A barefoot boy with shoes on 
Stood sitting on the grass.

The rain was pouring down 
The moon was shining bright 
And everything that you could see 
Was hidden out of sight.

It was evening and the rising sun, 
Was setting in the West, 
The little fishes in the trees, 
Were huddled in their nest.

While the organ peeled potatoes, 
Lard was rendered by the choir, 
While the sexton rang the dish rag 
Someone set the church on fire.

Holy Smoke the preacher shouted, 
And in the rush he lost his hair, 
Now,his head resembles heaven 
For there is no parting there.
