I got right up on my horse Broom of course was my horse When somebody moved my horse I faw down an' go boom! I cried and cried and ran home to Ma It's all right now But how that certain place was hurtin' Mother put me straight to bed Straight to bed, oh, my head In my dreams they moved the bed I faw down an' go boom! You go boom an' I go boom an' we all faw down No use for crying, no use to frown The boy worthwhile is the boy who'll smile with tears in his eyes What's a mere boom to a fellow who's wise I took sweetie out to dine Out to dine, she said "Fine" When she ordered up some wine I faw down and go boom! Then I asked my pretty miss Pretty miss, for a kiss With a bang she said, "Take this!" I faw down and go boom! I cried and cried and said, "I love you" She laughed and laughed And said, "No jokin', you're provokin!" We got home to my surprise My surprise, she told lies Hubby hit me 'tween the eyes And I faw down and go boom! ******************** As recorded by EDDIE CANTOR with Nat Shilkret's Orch.:: Some kids say that the world today is all upside down Sometimes they're smiling, sometimes they frown My heart felt sore for the kid next door when I heard him cry Here's what he told me when I asked him why I played horsey down the street With my broom, down the street When somebody moved the street I faw down an' go boom! Then I got up on my horse Broom of course was my horse When somebody moved the horse I faw down an' go boom! I cried and cried and ran home to Ma It's better now But how that certain place was hurtin' Mama put me straight to bed Straight to bed, oh, my head In my dreams they moved the bed I faw down an' go boom! (Instrumental Break) I got a tip to buy some stocks Lost my shirt, lost my socks The minute that I buy some stock They faw down an' go boom! Got some liquor yesterday From a friend round my way Took one drink and wha'd'ya think I faw down an' go boom! The stuff they're selling us nowadays Is not so good It's apt to blind you, I'll remind you Years ago you'd buy some wine Wind up singing "Adeline" Now you wind up on your spine 'Cause you faw down an' go boom! ******************** As recorded by DOT DARE (better known as ANNETTE HANSHAW): Some kids say that the world today is all upside down Sometimes they're smiling, sometimes they frown My heart felt sore for the kid next door when I saw him cry Here's what he told me when I asked him why I played horsey down the street With my broom, down the street When somebody moved the street I faw down an' go boom! I got right up on my horse You see the broom of course was my horse When somebody moved my horse I faw down an' go boom! I cried and cried and ran home to Ma It's alright now But, gee, how that certain place was hurtin' Mama put me straight to bed Straight to bed, ooh, my head In my dreams they moved the bed I faw down an' go boom! London Bridge is far away But I went there one day Wandered underneath, I'll say I faw down there (Instrumental Break) I was learning how to dance How to dance and how to prance To kick high I took a chance I faw down an' go boom! Then my Dad stepped on my toes On my toes, goodness knows When the floor struck my poor nose I faw down an' go boom! I tried and tried to hide all my pride They laughed and laughed I shook my shoulder and grew bolder When I tried to do the splits Do the splits and make a hit Something started into rip I faw down an' go boom! ******************** As recorded by GEORGE HALL & HIS ORCH.: (Some kids say that the world today is all upside down) (Sometimes they're smiling, sometimes they frown) (My heart felt sore for the kid next door when I heard him cry) (Here's what he told me when I asked him why) I played horsey down the street With my broom, down the street (Then what happened down the street?) I faw down an' go boom! (Aah!) I got right up on my horse And my broom was my horse (Did you ride your little horse?) No, I faw down an' go boom! (Aah!) I cried cried and ran home to Ma It's all right now But how that certain place was hurtin' Mother put me straight to bed Great big bump on my head (Then you fell right out of bed) Yeah, I faw down an go boom! (This same boy was full of joy the very next day) (We saw him laughing, gee, he was gay) (We said, "Sonny, what's so funny, please tell us why) (You are so happy? And here's his reply) Papa come home late last night Mama said, "Pop, you're tight" When he tried to find the light He faw down and go boom! Papa, he begin to sing Mama said, "Bad old thing" Then she took a great big swing He faw down and go boom! The noise they made woke everyone up And though the doorbell kept on ringing Pop kept singing, "'Sweet Adeline...My Ade..." Mama chased him up the stairs with a lot of kitchen wear At the top he said, "Who cares" He faw down and go boom, boom, boom. boom. boom, boom, boom! ******************** As recorded by PHIL ARNOLD with Harry Hudson's Melody Men: Some kids say that the world today is all upside down Sometimes they're smiling, sometimes they frown My heart felt sore for the kid next door when I saw him cry Here's what he told me when I asked him why I played horsey down the street With my broom, down the street When somebody moved the street I faw down and go boom! (Ooh!) I got right up on my horse Broom of course was my horse When somebody moved my horse I faw down and go boom-boom! (Ooh!) I cried and cried and ran home to Ma It's alright now But how that certain place was hurtin' Mother put me straight to bed Straight to bed, oh, my head In my dreams they moved the bed And I faw down and go boom! I took sweetie out to dine Out to dine, she said "Fine" When she ordered up some wine I faw down and go boom! (Shame!)

I bought it up at eighty-three It went up to ninety-three I was happy as could be I faw down' and go boom! I went and bought myself a Rolls-Royce Oh Gee, Oh Joy, while I was singing The phone kept ringing Then my broker said to me That stock you bought at eighty-three Is lower than the deep blue sea I faw down an' go boom! I'm broke, no joke, it's tough as can be Oh Gee, you see That even cotton's down to nothin' Yesterday I felt immense Climbed a high picket fence A picket struck me in de pents I faw down an' go boom! ******************** ALTERNATE VERSES (2): All the students treat me grand They all formed one big band Then they taught me football and I faw down an' go boom! To perfect it I did try Practiced it on the sly Suddenly the Dean walked by I faw down an' go boom! He tackled me, I couldn't explain I had to tell My story in the dormitory Soon my Pa was notified With a letter he replied But no allowance cheque inside I faw down an' go boom!
