Verse 2:

	The Devil came from Kansas
	Where he went to I can't say
	If you really are my brother

	And the ones about to go
	There's a dark cloud just above us
	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]
