    One fine day as I was a-walkin' down the street
    Spied a beggar man with rags upon his feet
    Took a penny from my pocket
    In his tin cup I did drop it
    I heard him say as I made my retreat

    May the bird of paradise fly up your nose
    May an elephant caress you with his toes
    May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose
    May the bird of paradise fly up your nose

    The laundry man is really on his toes
    Found a hundred-dollar bill among my clothes
    When he called me I came a-runnin'
    Gave him back his dime for phonin'
    I heard him sayin' as I turned to go


    I was way behind one day to catch the train
    Taxi driver said "We'll make it just the same"
    The speed cop made it with us
    And as he wrote out the ticket
    I stood by politely a-waitin' for my change

    [Chorus x3]
