  • ‘Twas midnight on the ocean, not a streetcar was in sight,
    The sun was shining brightly for it had rained all the night.
    ‘Twas a summer’s day in winter, the rain was snowing fast,
    As a barefoot girl with shoes on, stood sitting on the grass.
    ‘Twas evening and the rising sun was setting in the west;
    And all the fishes in the trees were cuddled in their nests.

    The rain was pouring down, the sun was shining bright,
    And everything that you could see was hidden out of sight.
    The organ peeled potatoes, lard was rendered by the choir;
    When the sexton rang the dishrag, someone set the church on fire.
    “Holy smoke,” the preacher shouted, as he madly tore his hair.
    Now his head resembles heaven for there is no parting there.
    --1930s children’s nonsense rhyme
