Roger Bobo Gives  

Recital on Tuba

–Headline in the Times

 

Eskimos in Manitoba,

Barracuda off Aruba,

Cock an ear when Roger Bobo

   Starts to solo on the tuba.

 

Men of every station—Pooh-Bah,

  Nabob, bozo, toff, and hoo–

Cry in unison, “Indubi-

Tably, there is simply nobo-

 

Dy who oompahs on the tubo,

Solo, quite like Roger Bubo!”
