#1.
E                     B                  E
One fine day as I was a-walkin' down the street..
E                                     B
spied a beggar man with rags upon his feet.
       E                            A
Took a penny from my pocket..in his tin cup I did drop it..
      E                B           E
and I heard him say as I made my retreat..

CHORUS:
E
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose.
                                    B
May an elephant caress you with his toes.
         E                                   A
May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose.
        E           B                E
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose.

E                 B             E
My laundry man is really on his toes.
E                                    B
Found a hundred-dollar bill among my clothes.
        E
When he called me I came runnin'..gave him 
A
back his dime for phonin'..
      E                B              E
and I heard him sayin' as I turned to go..

CHORUS:
E
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose.
                                    B
May an elephant caress you with his toes.
         E                                   A
May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose.
        E           B                E
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose.

E                    B              E
I was way behind one day to catch a train.
E                                         B
Taxi driver said, 'We'll make it just the same!'
  E                                A
A speed cop made it with us and as he wrote out the ticket..
  E                   B              E         
I stood by, politely, waitin' for my change.

CHORUS:
E
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose.
                                    B
May an elephant caress you with his toes.
         E                                   A
May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose.
        E           B                E
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose.

OUTRO:
E
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose.
                                    B
May an elephant caress you with his toes.
         E                                   A
May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose.
        E           B                E
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose. (Fade.)
