Words by J. Cheever Goodwin. Music by Woolson Morse.

Oh, here you are, here you are! walk up gentleman and ladies;
Throw a drowning man a spar, something simply awful, trade is;
Ere my powers their limit reach, and to suicide I'm driven,
Buy balloons at two sous each; at that price away they're given,
Given, given, given, given.

Buy a balloon, buy a balloon,
To carry your messages up to the moon.
The man in the moon will receive them, "Collect,"
And forward them anywhere you direct.
So buy a balloon, buy a balloon;
You may be too late, and you can't be too soon;
So grant to me this microscopical boon,
And buy of me, quick, a balloon.

Be pacified, and lay aside ideas of self-destruction:
We can't withstand your manner bland and accents of seduction.
Two paltry sons we won't refuse if they'll your life be saving:
So don't delay, but quick purvey balloons for which we're craving-
Yes, craving, craving, craving, craving.- Chorus.
