Subject: Lyr Add: JOHNNIE VERBECK^^

There was a Dutchman; his name was Johnnie Verbeck.
He was a dealer in sausages and sauerkraut and spec.
He makes the finest sausages that ever you did see,
But one day he invented a wonderful sausage machine.

CHORUS: Oh, Mister Johnnie Verbeck, how could you be so mean?
I told you you'd be sorry for inventing that machine.
All the neighbors cats and dogs will never more be seen,
For they'll be ground to sausage meat in Johnnie Verbeck's machine.

One day a little fat boy came a walking in the store.
He brought a pound of sausage and piled them on the floor.
The boy began to whistle and he whistled up a tune,
And all the sausages went a-dancing 'round the room. CHORUS

One day the machine got busted the blamed thing wouldn't go,
So Johnnie Verbeck, he climbed inside to see what made it so.
His wife, she had a nightmare and, walking in her sleep,
She gave the crank an awful yank and Johnnie Verbeck was meat. CHORUS

Camp song.
