Foolish Facts

(Frank Crumit / Frank O'Brien / Billy Curtis)

Al Bowlly and the Radio Rhythm Five


This world is full of foolish facts
I'm sure you will agree
So I just put em all in rhyme
And wrote this melody

Foolish facts
Foolish facts
Fool I did
And silly cracks
But we have nothing else to do
So let's go crazy

A horse won't eat baloney
And the social bell won't ring
But farmer boys they all fixate
'Cos youth must have its fling

Now man may be the stronger pick
But I'm right here to say
From the country folks placed on the scale
A women has her ways

When husbands miss their wives, is when
The dinners two hours late
When women miss their husbands, is
Because they can't row straight

Foolish facts
Foolish facts
Fool I did
And silly cracks
But we have nothing else to do
So let's go crazy

Now women dress for fellow' eyes
And if it's though they won't
They're insulted when you look
Disappointed when we don't

A bride may serve poor coffee
But it's excusable of course
But when she serves the coffee grounds
That's grounds for a divorce

Now when a farmer sheers his sheep
It does it for the wool
But when he starts to talk on veal
It's just a lot of bull

Foolish facts
Foolish facts
Fool I did
And silly cracks
But we have nothing else to do
I don't love spinich

An English man's a social chap
There's only one complain
He drops his H's where they R
And put's them where they ain't

The undertakes is a man
That you should not offend
For you know just as well as I
He'll get you in the end

My grandad loves to fiddle up
The old Virginia reel
But he hates the tone of the saxophone
Cos he has no sax-a-peal

Foolish facts
Foolish facts
Fool I did
And silly cracks
But we have nothing else to do
I don't like potatoes
