WILL THE REAL
PLEASE SIT DOWN
"There goes Jerry Lewis.
But he's right over here.
Well which one is he really?
It's not very clear.
'Cause he's here, there, everywhere
Up the street, down the stairs
Running, jumping, slipping, sliding,
Laughing, singing, then he's hiding
Was he, is he, in a tizzy
Something's cooking, is he busy
Comin' goin' yes-and-no'in.
Did you think he's overflowin'
Kitchen sink is overflowin'
Goin' round revolving doors
Getting wet, in a jet,
dancing to the castanets.
Lookin' round foreign spy,
there he goes, private eye.
It's so confusin'
But so amusin'
What is he doing now?"
(Filmation / ABC-TV / September 12, 1970 - September 2, 1972)
