Humphrey Bogart broke a leg
His gray fedora hit the pavement
And he split his cigarette in two
In two
Waitress, there’s been some mistake
This ham on rye could pass for eggs
Pajamas in the hospital are blue
They’re blue

I know what holiday
Comes after Easter, it’s in May
And it’s called Humpty Dumpty Day
It’s true, it’s true

Humphrey Bogart broke a leg
But he told his friends he was okay
Then he wrestled Ronald Reagan to the floor
To the floor
Every time a doorbell rings
It’s just a lady selling wigs
Or men collecting metal for the war
For the war
Humphrey Bogart broke a leg
And now he has to have an operation
And all the radios
Are only playing opera

I know what holiday
Comes in the summer, it’s today
And it’s called Jack Be Nimble Day
I’m telling you it’s true

Humphrey Bogart broke a leg
And now he’ll never be the same
Those circus peanuts
Really aren’t good for you
