It's a young one
It's a young world
Well I went to a goddamn party
Well I went to a garden party
"Poor Little Fool"
Pooh little fool
Poor little fool
Well, I went to a guardian parting
And reminisced with my old friends
Well, I went to a Garden Party
To reminisce with my old friends

Oh, my sweet frog lyin'
Down in Birmingham
Oh my sweet fräulein
Down in Berlin town
Story about this misheard lyric by: Robert Jones
I first heard this as a child then unfamiliar with any German words or places, so naturally I was hard-put to understand it. I made out the best hearing of it I could. I never heard the song again or consciously remembered it that I know of until well after I was grown up. Incidentally, in the meantime, when I first learned that there was a German language, I do remember having a vague notion at first that I might be spoken somewhere like Alabama or thereabouts. I always wondered where that notion came from, but didn't have a clue until I started doing karaoke and learned this song again, it being vaguely familiar from of old. I realized then the confusion between Berlin town and Birmingham just might have been the origin of my confusion about German being spoken in Alabama.
The Dated Lyrics:
Can't phone, (can't phone) we done spent ev'ry dime.
Why They're Dated:
Even if he did still have a dime, it wouldn't do him much good seeing as how pay phones cost more than that now. Then again, if the song were to be recorded today, he wouldn't be worried about pay phone money, but lack of a cell phone.

Oh my sweet Fraeulien down in Berlin town
Makes my heart start to yearn.
And my China doll down in old Hong Kong
Waits for my return.
Berlin, Germany and Hong Kong, China are mentioned in these lines.
