Words & music by Paul Bodden
"Blues"
1.
THE NOSE THAT GOT AWAY
Ran to Santa Fe.
It dripped and it dropped
'Til it finally stopped
But will it ever come home?
A drippetty, drippetty, oo-ah!
A drippetty, drippetty, ew!

2.
THE NOSE THAT GOT AWAY
Ran down Mexico way.
Well, talk about hot!
It nearly got shot!
But still it would not come home.
A drippetty, drippetty
Ah-choo!

3.
From Memphis to Philly,
It ran willy nilly
O'er hills daffodilly
But will 'e ever come home?

THE NOSE THAT GOT AWAY.
