Play That Oboe Hobo

Play that Oboe Hobo!
Far across the field.
Like a Gypsy dancin'...
Never yet to yield.

Play that piper viper,
Play it all in song.
Tambourine and magic...
As we dance along.

Sing the mystery of life!
Beat the drum and play the fife.
Play that Oboe Hobo...
Onward as we go.

See that Gypsy dancin'
All around the camp.
In a trance that she may stray...
Just for another day.

As the smoke, it rises,
Swirling through the air...
Play that Oboe Hobo...
Sing without a care...

Play that Oboe Hobo,
Play it all in tune.
Bend an ear that we may hear...
the echo of a loon!

Stretch that note and dance it...
All about the town.
Wayward from the brush we hear...
Beauty all around.

Play that Oboe Hobo...
Down the railroad track.
Like a Gypsy dancin'...
Never to come back!
