Deck Us All With Boston Charlie

Deck us all with Boston Charlie, Walla Walla, Wash., an’ Kalamazoo! Nora’s freezin’ on the trolley, Swaller dollar cauliflower alley-garoo!

Duck us all in bowls of barley, Hinky dinky dink an’ Polly Voo! Chilly Filly’s name is Chollie, Chollie Filly’s jolly chilly view halloo!

Bark us all bow-wows of folly, Double-bubble, toyland trouble! Woof, Woof, Woof! Tizzy seas on melon collie! Dibble-dabble, scribble-scrabble! Goof, Goof, Goof!

Tickle salty boss anchovie Wash a wash a wall Anna Kangaroo Ducky allus bows to Polly, Prolly Wally would but har’ly do!

Dock us all a bowsprit, Solly – Golly, Solly’s cold and so’s ol’ Lou!
