This cold is too much for my shirt sleeve.
Go get me a Kleenex- and fast.
I sniffle I wheeze
And I'm ready to sneeze
And I don't knw how long I can last...
Atchh- it's too wet for a Kleenex,
So bring me a hankerchief, quick.
It's- atchoo- no joke,
Now the hankerchief's soaked.
Hey, a dish towel just might do the trick.
Atchoo- it's too much for a bath towel.
There never has been such a cold.
I'll be better off
With that big table cloth
No- bring me the flag off the pole.
Atchoo- bring the clothes from the closet.
Atchaa- get the sheets from the bed,
The drapes off the window,
The rugs off the floor
To soak up this cold in my head.
Atchoo- hurry down to the circus
And ask if they'll lend you a tent.
You say they said yes?
Here is come- Lord be blessed-
Here it is- Ah-kachoooo -there it went.
