CRAZY MIXED UP SONG (Grean / Joan Javits) Billy Cotton & His Band ‘Twas midnight on the ocean not a streetcar was in sight The sun was shining brightly in the middle of the night A barefoot boy with shoes on stood there sitting in a tree And when I put my glasses on I heard this melody Be kind to your web footed friends For a duck may be somebody’s mother Be kind to the denizen of the swamp She’s a dilly through and through You may think that this is the end Well it isn’t ‘cos there is another chorus. ‘Twas midnight on the ocean when the rain began to snow He hurried to me slowly ‘cos the time had come to go I said I’d wait forever if it wouldn’t take too long And silently we harmonised this crazy mixed up song Be kind to your web footed friends For a duck may be somebody’s mother Be kind to the denizen of the swamp She’s a dilly through and through You may think that this is the end Well it isn’t ‘cos there is another chorus. ‘Twas midnight on the ocean on the day I married him I didn’t know his name was Fred that’s why I called him Jim We settled down in London, France, beside the pyramids And raised a little family of crazy mixed up kids Be kind to your web footed friends For a duck may be somebody’s mother Be kind to the denizen of the swamp She’s a dilly through and through You may think that this is the end Well it is.
