“Oh, where are you goin’, my Jimmy-Jack-John,
With only the moon for your light?”
“I’m goin’ ‘round in search of the dawn,
And I’ll prob’ly be gone most the night.”
“Oh, why are you cryin’, my Jimmy-Jack-John,
And why do you stare out to sea?”
“I’m thinkin’ that over the waves of the pond
The dawn lies a-waitin’ for me.”
“But why do you wander, my Jimmy-Jack-John,
A-roamin’ in search of the blue?
Just wrap yourself tight in this blanket of night
And the dawn will come to you.”
The Yesees said yes to anything
That anyone suggested.
The Noees said no to everything
Unless it was proven and tested.
So the Yesees all died of much too much
and the Noees all died of fright,
But somehow I think the Thinkforyourselfees
All came out all right.
