There Gonce was a musical G7troupe a CpickinF singinF Gfolk group they Csang the mountain Gballads and the Ffolk songs oDf our D7land They were Glong on musical aG7bility folks Cthought they would goG far but poClitical incompatibiliGty leDd to their dowGnfall well the Cone on the right was Gon the left and the Done in the middle was Gon the right and the Cone on the left was Gin the middle and the Dguy in the D7rear was a MethoGdist * This musical agregation toured the entire nation singing the traditional ballads and the folk songs of our land they performed with great virtuosity and soon they were the rage but political animosity prevailed upon the stage well the one on the right was on the left and the one in the middle was on the right and the one on the left was in the middle and the guy in the rear burned his driversF license * Well the curtain had ascended a hush fell on the crowd as thousands there were gathered to hear the folk songs of our land but they took their politics seriously and that night at the concert hall as the audience watched deliriously they had a free-for-all well the one on the right was on the bottom and the one in the middle was on the top and the one on the left got a broken arm and the guy in the rear, said, "oh dear" * Now this should be a lesson if you plan to start a folk group donFt go mixinF politics with the folk songs of our land just work on harmony and diction play your banjo well and if you have political convictions keep fem to yourself now the one on the left works in a bank and the one in the middle drives a truck the one on the rightFs an all-night deejay and the guy in the rear got drafted *
