Irving the Rover This song was composed by Irving the Rover As he traveled through Brooklyn and most parts of Queens. He became so verblunget (which means great confusion In case you shouldn't know what verblunget means). At Flatbush near Nostrand he'd been on his ramblin' Being footsore and weary he lay down to rest. He bought Zion salami and Katz's pastrami, But Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray was what he liked best It tasted more sweeter than a strawberry malted, More sweeter than halvah and gave more content, But the thought of his mother, lamenting and kvetching Made him feel so guilty and made him repent. The night fast approaching, to the subway he resorted Heading home to Coney Island where Nathan's shines bright. His mother was surprised when first he arrived, ``I'll fix you a corned beef sandwich; Why didn't you write?'' So he's living back at home and his mother's contented They have Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray delivered to the door So he sits in the bathroom and dreams about women But he stays home with his mother and goes rambling no more MC
