Boom Boom, Ain't It Great To Be Crazy!

Song Video

Lyrics

A horse and a flea and three blind mice
Sat on a tombstone shooting dice,
The horse he slipped and fell on the flea,
"Whoops,' said the flea, "there's a horse on me!'.

Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy,
Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy,
Giddy and foolish the whole day through, [some say "Silly and foolish. '. ]
Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy?

There was an old doctor and his name was Peck.
Fell down the well and broke his neck
Served him right, he was doing wrong.
Should have tended to the sick, and let the well alone.

Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy,
Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy,
Giddy and foolish the whole day through,
Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy?

Way down South where bananas grow,
An ant stepped on an elephant's toe,
The elephant cried with tears in his eyes,
"Why don't you pick on someone your own size?'.

Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy,
Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy,
Giddy and foolish the whole day through,
Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy?

Way up North where there's ice and snow,
There lived a penguin and his name was Joe,
He got so tired of black and white,
He wore pink slacks to the dance last night!

Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy,
Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy,
Giddy and foolish the whole day through,
Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy?

Eli, Eli, he sells socks,
a dollar a pair, a nickel a box
The longer you wear them
the shorter they get.
Throw'em in the water
and they don't get wet.

Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy,
Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy,
Giddy and foolish the whole day through,
Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy?

Late last night, I had a real strange dream,
Ate a nine-pound marshmallow my mom gave me,
When I woke up, I knew somethin' was wrong,
I looked around and saw my pillow was gone.

Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy,
Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy,
Giddy and foolish the whole day through,
Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy?

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.

I always sing the chorus "boom boom ain't it great to be crazy/boom boom ain't it great to be nuts like us/giddy and foolish the whole day through/boom boom ain't it great to be crazy" Also, I think someone else mentioned this verse, but here's one I always sing: "Coca-cola came to town, Pepsi-cola shot him down, Dr Pepper fixed 'em up, now they all drink 7 Up!"

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...
