in Just-
spring          when the world is mud-
luscious the little
lame balloonman
 
whistles       far         and wee --
 
and eddieandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it's
spring
 
when the world is puddle-wonderful
the queer
old balloonman whistles
far       and         wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing
 
from hop-scotch and jump-rope and
 
it's
spring
and
        the
 
                goat-footed
 
balloonMan         whistles
far
                                and
                wee
