REFRAIN:
BOOM, BOOM, AIN'T IT GREAT TO BE CRAZY
BOOM, BOOM, AIN'T IT GREAT TO BE CRAZY

BOOM, BOOM, AIN'T IT GREAT TO BE CRAZY.

A HORSE AND A FLEA AND THREE BLIND MICE
SAT ON A CURBSTONE SHOOTING DICE
THE HORSEY SLIPPED AND IT FELL ON THE FLEA.
AND THE FLEA SAID, "OPPS, THERE'S A HORSEY ON ME."

A PENGUIN BY THE NAME OF JOE,
WAY UP NORTH WHERE THERE'S ICE AND SNOW,
GOT SO TIRED OF BLACK AND WHITE,
THAT HE WORE PINK PAJAMAS TO A PARTY ONE NIGHT.
