Old Man Kensey wants to be a sign painter
First he's got to learn to read
He's gonna be a clown on TV
Flags at his elbow, time to breathe
That's my folly, I believe
Drink up the lake Kensey's awake
That's my folly, that's my mistake

Old Man Kensey wants to be a goalie
First he's got to learn to count
He's gonna be a clown on a circus mount
Letters to be signed in sopped-up tar
Kensey's going far
John, Bill and Ed, stand on your head
That's my folly, I'm ready to go

Old Man Kensey wants to be a dog catcher
First he's got to learn to stand
He's gonna be a clown in a marching band
Letters to be signed ransom greed
That's my folly, I believe
Drink up the lake, John, Bill and Ed,
That's my folly, that's my mistake
Kensey's awake, stand on your head
