THE WIND KNOWS THE TRUTH

By John D. Loudermilk
1967 Acuff-Rose Publ. Inc.

Oh, the cat wears his hat down over his ears
And the mouse, his collar up high
And old mister owl bids you good-day in pig-Latin
And the man in the moon is eatin' green cheese
And washin' it down with clouds
And the rabbit and coon are playin' a tune on their fiddle
But the wind knows, the wind knows, the wind knows
The wind knows the truth

That the cat doesn't wear his hat that low
And the mouse, his collar that high
And that old mister owl only speaks in Spanish
And the wind knows the man in the moon doesn't like
His cheese washed down with clouds
And the rabbit and coon play the bassoon, not the fiddle
Yeah, the wind knows, the wind knows, the wind knows
The wind knows the truth
