As I did walk by Hampstead Fair
I came upon Mother Goose - So I turned her loose -
she was screaming.
And a foreign student said to me - was it really true there are
elephants and lions too in Piccadily Circus?
Walked down by the bathing pond to try and catch some sun.
Saw at least a hundred schoolgirlssobbing into handkerchiefs as one.
I don't believe they know I was a schoolboy.
And a bearded lady said to me - if you start your raving, and your misbehaving -
you'll be sorry.
Then the chicken-fancier came to play -
with his long red beard (and his sister's weird:
She drives a lorry).
Laughed down by the putting green - I popped 'em in their holes.
Four and twenty labourers were labouring - digging up their gold.
I don't believe they know I was Long John Silver.
Saw Johnny Scarecrow make his rounds
in his jet-black 'mac (which he won't give back) -
stole it from a snowman.
