World Turned Upsidedown (Buttercups)

If buttercups buzz'd after the bee,
If boats were on land, churches on sea,
If ponies rode men and if grass ate the cows,
And cats should be chased into holes by the mouse,
     If the mamas sold their babies
     To the gypsies for half a crown;
     If summer were spring and the other way round,
     Then all the world would be upside down.

Note: Played by British fifers at Cornwallis' surrender at
     Yorktown. American fifers played Yankee Doodle.
