This song is available on Mary Miché's Animal Crackers.
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 bananas grow
An ant stepped on an elephant’s toe
The elephant said, with tears in his eyes,
Why don’t you pick on someone your own size?
A horsie and a flea and three blind mice
Sat on a curbstone shooting dice
The horsie slipped and fell on the flea
“Oops” said the flea, “there’s a horsie on me!”
(Instrumental: Electric fiddle)
Way up North where there’s ice and snow
There lived a penguin, his name was Joe
He got so tired of black and white
He wore pink pants to the dance last night!
(Chorus one more time)
