The Bongaloo

"What is a Bongaloo, Daddy?"
"A Bongaloo, Son," said I,
"Is a tall bag of cheese
"Plus a Chinaman's knees
"And the leg of a nanny goat's eye."

"How strange is a Bongaloo, Daddy?"
"As strange as strange," I replied.
"When the sun's in the West
"It appears in a vest
"Sailing out with the noonday tide."

"What shape is a Bongaloo, Daddy?"
"The shape, my Son, I'll explain:
"It's tall round the nose
"Which continually grows
In the general direction of Spain."

"Are you sure there's a Bongaloo, Daddy?"
"Am I sure, my Son?" said I.
"Why, I've seen it, not quite
"On a dark sunny night
"Do you think that I'd tell you a lie?"
