ONCE UPON A TIME , IN A NURSERY RHYME, THREE LITTLE MEN GOT LOST,
LIKE YOU AND ME, THEY COULDN'T AGREE, AND UPON THE WAVES THEY TOSSED,
I'LL SING THEIR TUNE, CAUSE THEY GOT MAROONED,WITH A LOVE I CAN'T FORGET,
NOW THE THREE LITTLE MEN JUST TOOK ME IN, ON AN OCEAN OF REGRET

WITH A RUB-A-DUB-DUB, THREE MEN IN THE TUB, LOST ON THE OCEAN BLUE,
I ROW LIKE A HUB, SANG RUB-A-DUB-DUB,CAUSE YOU BROKE MY HEART IN
TWO.

LEAD

WELL, I CAN'T REACH SHORE, AND MY HEART IS SORE, AND I'M DRIFTIN FAR AWAY,
FROM THE LOVE I HAD, AND I'M FEELIN' MIGHTY BAD, AND I CAN'T GO ON THIS WAY,
WON'T YOU THROW OUT THE LINE, AND SAY YOU'RE MINE, AND TAKE ME BACK AGAIN,
CAUSE MY RUDDER'S BROKE, AND IT AIN'T NO JOKE, WON'T YOU REACH AND PULL ME
