7/7/55 - A-Ridin' on a Raft BY-WAYS - 7/7/55 - A-Ridin' on a Raft -


"C'mon, you guys, and fetch some boards;
We're gonna build a raft. -
I'll let you help - but I'm the boss;
Y' see, I'm takin' craft

"Say, Mom, we made it - quick as heck -
And, oh boy, how we laffed
When Bill, the big shot, got too smart,
And slithered off the raft."

Ah, debonair and brave Huck Finns!
The fellow must be daft
Who dreams of bliss compared to this:
A-ridin' on a raft.
