Verse 2:

	The Devil came from Kansas

	Don't scowl because I know

Verse 3:

	Though I never came from Kansas
	Don't forget to thank the cook 
	Which reminds me of my duty
	I was lost though now I look 
	For the turning and the signpost 
	And the road which takes you down 
	To that pool inside the forest
	In whose waters I shall drown

[repeat chorus]
