.: THE BABBITT AND THE BROMIDE :.

A Babbitt met a Bromide on the avenue one day
They held a conversation in their own peculiar way
They both were solid citizens- They both had been around
And as they spoke you clearly saw their feet were on the ground

Hello ! How are you ?
Howza folks ? What's new ?
I'm great ! That's good !
Ha ! Ha ! Knock wood !
Well ! Well ! That's Life !
Whatd'ya know ? How's the wife ?
Gotta run ! Oh my !
Ta Ta ! Olive Oil ! Good-bye !

Ten years went quickly by for both these sub-sti-an-tial men
And then it happened that one day they chanced to meet again
That they have both developed in ten years there was no doubt
And so of course they had an awful lot to talk about

Hello ! How are you ?
Howza folks ? What's new ?
I'm great ! That's good !
Ha ! Ha ! Knock wood !
Well ! Well ! That's Life !
Whatd'ya know ? How's the wife ?
Gotta run ! Oh my !
Ta Ta ! Olive Oil ! Good-bye !

Before they met again some twenty years they had to wait
This time it happened up above, inside St. Peter's gate
A hard each one was carrying and both were wearing wings
And this is what they said as they kept strumming on the strings

Hello ! How are you ?
Howza folks ? What's new ?
I'm great ! That's good !
Ha ! Ha ! Knock wood !
Well ! Well ! That's Life !
Whatd'ya know ? How's the wife ?
Gotta run ! Oh my !
Ta Ta ! Olive Oil ! Good-bye !
