The Lyrics

Way up below the Swampy River
Far, far away;
I lost my 1920 flivver,
Deep down a quicksand bay.
I'll need four grand for another
Anywhere I roam;
Boy, I'm gonna catch it from my mother,
If I ever get a ride home.
I came up with these lyrics 40 years ago, when I was in junior-high school--and I never even wrote them down.
