As I did walk by Hampstead Fair I came upon Mother Goose -- so I turned her loose -- She was screaming. And a foreign student said to me -- Was it really true there are elephants and lions too In Piccadilly Circus?
Walked down by the bathing pond To try and catch some sun. Saw at least a hundred schoolgirls sobbing Into hankerchiefs as one. I don't believe they knew I was a schoolboy.
And a bearded lady said to me -- If you start your raving and your misbehaving -- You'll be sorry. Then the chicken-fancier came to play -- With his long red beard (and his sister's weird: She drives a lorry).
Laughed down by the putting green -- I popped `em in their holes. Four and twenty labourers were labouring -- Digging up their gold. I don't believe they knew That I was Long John Silver.
Saw Johnny Scarecrow make his rounds In his jet-black mac (which he won't give back) -- Stole it from a snow man.
