Don't Jump off o' the Roof, Dad,
You'll make a dent in the yard
Mother just planted petunias,
The weeding and seeding was hard
If you must end it all, Dad,
Then won't you give us a break
Just take a walk to the park, Dad,
And then you can jump the lake!
This refrain is all right the first time or two. But after the kids' mother comes outside and sees her husband about to jump off the roof, she is supposed to 'plead' with him not to jump. H&J sing the refrain just the same following that verse! So who planted petunias--the kids' mother or the mother's mother?
