Eli, Eli, he sells socks, a dollar a pair, a nickel a box
The longer you wear them, the shorter they get
And you put them in the water and they don't get wet.
Chorus: Boom boom ain't it great to be crazy
Boom boom ain't it great to be nuts like us
Silly and foolish all day long
Boom boom ain't it great to be crazy
Way down south where the banana trees grow
A monkey stepped on an elephants toe
The elephant cried with a tear in his eye
Why don't you pick on someone your own size.
Man had a pair of combination underwear
Wore them forty years without a tear
Forty years without exaggeration
Couldn't get them off because he lost the combination.
Horse, flea, and three blind mice sat on a curb shooting dice
The horse slipped and fell on the flea
Oops said the flea there's a horse on me!
Coca cola came to town, Pepsi cola shot him down
Dr. Pepper fixed him up, and now we're all drinking 7-up.
Papa moses shot a skunk, Mama Moses fixed the skunk
Baby Moses ate the skunk, an holy moses how they stunk!
Eli, Eli he went west, where he thought he was the best
Now they've laid him down to rest
