The Billboard (2)

The Billboard (2)

As I was walking down the street
A billboard met my eye
The advertisements written there
Would make you laugh and cry
The wind and rain had been that day
And washed those signs away
And what was left upon that wall
Would make that billboard say:

"Come smoke a Coca Cola
Drink Ketchup Cigarettes
See Lillian Russel rassle
With a box of oysterettes.
The BVD's the best hotel
Let Colgates do your work
Let anyone who wears one
Take home an Arrow shirt.
Overcoats are selling now
Making spirits bright
Sapolio cures the measles if applied just right
I thank you for your kindness
It certainly is immense
But I'm not going to sing any more
Because it's all nonsense.
