You can add this verse to make it a bit longer

I must go off to a barbecue now in Oxford with
friends, but if you do not know "Boom, boom, ain't it
great to be crazy", ask and I'll send it to you.
Joe Martin.

This is a more condensed version we found

Horse And A Flea And Three Blind Mice
Sat On The Curb Stone Shooting Dice
Horse Fell Down And Sat On The Flea Whoops Said The Flea
There's A Horse On Me
Boom Boom Ain't It Great To Be Crazy
One Dark Night Just After Day A Wandering Man Had Lost His Way
Saw A Sign Post Very Very Faint
Climbed To The Top And Said Wet Paint.

Boom Boom Ain't It Great To Be Crazy
I Was Out With The Milk One Morning Along Came A Maid
Said Lets Have A Race
Sure As I Was In It I Was Coming In A Winner
When The Mail Called Milk And I Lost That Race
Boom Boom Ain't It Great To Be Crazy
I Had A Dog And His Name Was Rover He Was Nothing But A Pup
He Could Stand Upon His Hind Legs
If You Held His Front Legs Up. .
Boom Boom Ain't It Great To Be Crazy.

We used to sign this with the kids in the car on long drives to pass the time. Dad (Boom, boom), Mum (ain't it great to be), repeat. Kids (Crazy), Kids (Giddy and foolish the whole day through), Everyone sang the last line of the chorus. Kids would take it in turn to do verses. Great fun and for passing time. Startled some bystanders if stationary, though.

I grew up singing this differently with this refrain and now I don't know where I got it, but it was on an album of my older sisters'. Can you tell me where these words came from? "Boom boom ain't it great to be crazy, boom boom ain't it great to be nuts... Boom boom ain't it great to be crazy, when everybody else is nuts, boom boom. "

I went in a cave and I saw a bear; He was snoring out loud as he was sleeping there; He woke up and saw me but decided to laugh; I was wearing my pjs with silly giraffes...

Another verse: Bought a pair of combination underwear; Guaranteed not to rip or tear. Wore 'em six months without exaggeration- Couldn't get 'em off cause I lost the combination! Boom Boom...It ain't great to be crazy? etc

You have no idea how much I adore this song, but you're missing some verses. TOOK MYSELF TO THE PICTURE SHOW SAT MYSELF ON THE VERY LAST ROW CALLED MYSELF ON THE TELEPHONE JUST TO SEE IF I WAS HOME *chorus* FATHER MOSES KILLED A SKUNK MOTHER MOSES COOKED THE SKUNK BABY MOSES ATE THE SKUNK HOLY MOSES, HOW THEY STUNK *chorus* Also, this song has movements. I can't fit all of them here, but for the chorus: BOOM (elbows pound on table or knees) BOOM (hands pound on table) AIN'T IT GREAT (clap) TO BE CRAZY (make circles around your ears with your fingers) ...during the giddy and foolish, you wave your hands in front of you in time to the rhythm. This is a great favorite at my summer camp when everyone's around tables and you run out of stuff to do.
