SOMEBODY GOOFED (D. Manning / A. Hoffman / Nardone) Billy Cotton & His Band V. Alan Breeze & Chorus (Chorus) It could happen to you, it could happen to me, And it even happened to happen in history (Alan) Venus De Milo is known throughout the world The people came from near and far The day she was unfurled One look and you can see Her beauty and her charms But wonít somebody tell me What happened to her arms (Chorus) Somebody goofed, somebody goofed, Oh we donít know who it was but somebody goofed (All) One day, in Boston, Ďtwas many years ago They dumped some tea into the sea Or history tells you so (Alan) The fishes in the bay Were startled suddenly One fish said to another ďThis water tastes like teaĒ (Chorus) Somebody goofed, somebody goofed, Oh we donít know who it was but somebody goofed (Musical Break) (Chorus) Somebody goofed, Somebody goofed. (Chorus) The tower of Pisa is wondrous Iíve been told The people who have seen it say Itís something to behold (Alan) To see the famous sight I was so very keen I saw it, now I ask you What makes the tower lean? (Chorus) Somebody goofed, somebody goofed, Oh we donít know who it was but somebody goofed (All) Down to the seaside to spend a holiday We meant to give ourselves a time And all be bright and gay (Alan) The weather man said ďFineĒ We got aboard the train But as we left the station It happened once again (Sound of rain and thunder) (Chorus) Oh no! Somebody goofed, somebody goofed, Oh we donít know who it was but somebody goofed (Chorus) It could happen to you, it could happen to me, And if it didnít happen to happen, How different history would be. (Alan) Somebody goofed. additional verse: You've heard of Casey, the famous engineer, He drove his train through driving rain, He thought the track was clear. He smashed into a freight, He couldn't see a thing; And as he flew to heaven, The angels heard him sing: Big Injun powwow in Oklahoma State. They made a squawk about New York Though many years too late. One chief got up to say, "Those Indians were clucks! They sold Manhattan Island For twenty-seven bucks!"
