lyrics

Hats off to William Frawley
sometimes it hurts to be Fred Mertz.
Conniving Ethel begs to bleed
Lucy, Ricky and little Ricky
quarterdrawn by the quarter dozen.

A baboon screams
in babaloo dreams.
A gibbon gives up.
A chimpan sneezes.

Hats off to William Frawley
holding off the Vivian’s advance.

Vaudeville calls.
The hearbeat stalls.
Carpets fall from the sky.
And we are truly stranded
landlords duly branded.
623 East 68th Street
exists on no map.
