There Was A Man
(a.k.a. "There Was A Man & He Was Mad" - Bowdlerized version)
Words & Music:
C F C
There was a man and he was mad,
And he jumped into a heating pad!
The heating pad, it got so hot,
That he jumped into a honey pot!
The honey pot, it was so dark,
That he jumped into a doggie bark!
The doggie's bark, it was so loud
That he jumped into a big, white cloud.
The big white cloud, it was so high,
That he jumped 'way up to the top of the sky.
Another man was just as mad,
And he jumped into a shopping bag.
The paper bag, it was so narrow
That he jumped into a big wheelbarrow.
The big wheelbarrow ran away
And bumped into a cart of hay.
The cart of hay, well, it caught fire
And flew him up to Jeremiah.
Jeremiah was full of stones
And so they broke the madman's bones.
