Just got home from Illinois, lock the front door, oh boy! 
Got to sit down, take a rest on the porch. 
Imagination sets in, pretty soon I'm singing, 
 
CHORUS: 
Doo, doo, doo, Looking out my back door. 
There's a giant doing cartwheels, 
A statue wearing high heels. 
Look at all the happy creatures dancing on the lawn. 
A dinosaur Victrola listening to Buck Owens. 
 
CHORUS 
 
Tambourines and elephants are playing in the band. 
Won't you take a ride on the flying spoon? 
Doo, doo doo. 
Wond'rous apparition provided by magician. 
 
CHORUS 
 
Tambourines and elephants are playing in the band. 
Won't you take a ride on the flying spoon? 
Doo, doo doo. 
Bother me tomorrow, today, I'll buy no sorrows. 
 
CHORUS 
 
Forward troubles Illinois, lock the front door, oh boy! 
Look at all the happy creatures dancing on the lawn. 
Bother me tomorrow, today, I'll buy no sorrows. 
 
CHORUS
