The Billboard Song (3) (Cy Coben and Charles Grean) As I was walking down the street a billboard caught my eye The advertisements written there would make you laugh and cry The signs were torn and scattered from the storm the night before And as I read the things they said, why, this is what I saw. Smoke Coca-Cola cigarettes, drink Wrigley's Spearmint beer Ken-L-Ration dog food keeps your wife's complexion clear Chew chocolate covered mothballs, they always satisfy Brush your teeth with Lifebouy Soap and watch the suds go by. When I recovered from the shock I went upon my way I'd gone no further than a block when there to my dismay Another billboard caught my eye and like the one before The wind and rain had done its work 'cause this is what I saw. Oh, take your next vacation in a brand new Frigidaire Learn to play pian-er in your winter underwear And Simonize your baby with a Hershey candy bar See the difference that Drain-o makes in all the movie stars. Oh, doctors proved that babies shouldn't smoke til they are three People over 35 take baths in Lipton's Tea You wanna make this country a better place today Just buy a record of this song and throw it "fur" away. T - I - D - E; spells - TIDE! Recorded by Homer and Jethro SOURCE: H&J: AT THE COUNTRY CLUB/RCA 1960 LSP-2181 GG OCT98
