I said to Harry, better watch out
You know what happens after a drought
Did he listen, figure it right?
You know Harry, not too bright.
I said to him, Harry, we need a boat
When the rains come, we’ll be able to float
But you know Harry, way too lazy
Told me he thought I was crazy.
I said, Harry go get some wood
Build a boat, I think we should
Of course Harry went back to bed
It was left to me to go to the shed
I said Harry we need nails and a hammer
Harry from the bed yelled, stop your yammer
Then as I was building, the rain kept acomin
On the old tin roof increasingly drummin
I worked as hard and fast as I could,
Shaping a boat with the old wood
I said Harry, you’d better hurry
Even the shed rats are starting to scurry
Old Harry never got out of bed
I finished the boat and left the shed
I said Harry, you need to come quick
The water’s afloodin, clouds are thick
As usual, my voice he ignored
So I left him there in the flooded fjord.
