May The Bird Of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose

Song Author Neal Merritt Lyrics by: Neal Merritt Performer: Little Jimmy Dickens Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]One fine day as I was [G7]walking down the [C]street
Spied a beggar man with rags upon his [G7]feet   
Took a [C]penny from my [C7]pocket
In his [F]tin cup I did [Fm]drop it
I [C]heard him say as [G7]I made my re[C]treat

May the bird of paradise fly [G7]up your [C]nose
May an elephant caress you with his [G7]toes   
May your wife [C]be plagued with [C7]runners in her [F]hose
May the bird [C]of paradise [G7]fly up your [C]nose

The laundry man is [G7]really on his [C]toes
Found a hundred dollar bill among my [G7]clothes
When he called[C] me I came [C7]running
Gave him [F]back his dime for [Fm]phoning
I [C]heard him saying as [G7]I turned to [C]go  

May the bird of paradise fly [G7]up your [C]nose
May an elephant caress you with his [G7]toes   
May your wife [C]be plagued with [C7]runners in her [F]hose
May the bird [C]of paradise [G7]fly up your [C]nose

I was way behind one [G7]day to catch the [C]train
The Taxi driver said We'll make it just the [G7]same   
The speed[C] cop made it [C7]with us
And as [F]he wrote out the [Fm]ticket
I stood [C]by politely [G7]waiting for my [C]change

May the bird of paradise fly [G7]up your [C]nose
May an elephant caress you with his [G7]toes   
May your wife [C]be plagued with [C7]runners in her [F]hose
May the bird [C]of paradise [G7]fly up your [C]nose

One fine day as I was walking down the street
Spied a beggar man with rags upon his feet
Took a penny from my pocket
In his tin cup I did drop it
I heard him say as I made my retreat

May the bird of paradise fly up your nose
May an elephant caress you with his toes
May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose

The laundry man is really on his toes
Found a hundred dollar bill among my clothes
When he called me I came running
Gave him back his dime for phoning
I heard him saying as I turned to go

May the bird of paradise fly up your nose
May an elephant caress you with his toes
May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose

I was way behind one day to catch the train
The Taxi driver said We'll make it just the same
The speed cop made it with us
And as he wrote out the ticket
I stood by politely waiting for my change

May the bird of paradise fly up your nose
May an elephant caress you with his toes
May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose
