Tortoise Sue is a turtle who
Lost her shell on the street outside my window
I was there! I saw the gust of wind blow
Leaving her
Naked as a bone
 
But the saddest thing of all
All together now, «Boo, hoo, hoo!»
Is that she lost her carryall
And in it, she had brought a thing or two
 
Bullfrog Zeke with his puffed up cheeks
Said, «My dear» (in his customary coldness)
«I daresay, you need a certain boldness
To be seen
In your birthday suit»
 
But the saddest thing of all
All together now, «Boo, hoo, hoo!»
The candy in her carryall
Could have sweetened up the sourpuss
 
Cabbage Jean, the virtuous green
Said,I cannot abide by all this lewdness!
I've a skirt to cover up your nudeness
You'll be cute
In a green tutu
 
But the saddest thing of all
All together now, «Boo, hoo, hoo!»
The gag within her carryall
Could have been used in silencing the prude
 
Have you seen her, dressed in green?
Tortoise Sue looking like a cabbage roll
All alone in the street out for a stroll
Nibbling on her delicious dress
 
And that's how the story goes
Of Zeke and Jean and Tortoise Sue
And those of us well versed in prose 
Wrote this song 
For what else could we do?
For the little girls and little boys too!
