The Funny Farm

By Shmuel Ross

The funny farm is really swell;
They put you in a padded cell
And keep you there 'till you get well.
Why don't you come and join me?

The people here are lots of fun—
They're crazy, each and every one—
But so am I— what's to be done?
Why don't you come and join us?

They have some interesting views,
Like "Knives and Forks you might abuse!"
But spoons are lots of fun to use!
Why don't you come and join me?

And, oh, the games here are just great!
Just look at Inkblot Number Eight—
I think it looks like New York State!
Why don't you come and try it?

Each doctor here is quite a pro—
They say I'm here for life, you know—
But that's fine— I don't wanna go!
Why don't you come and join me?
