1 Who turn the whole house upside down?
The boys, the boys, the romping, heedless boys.
Who make a turmoil all thro’ town?
The boys, the noisy, careless boys.
There’s a place in the world for the merry, merry boys,
With all their fun and noise,
With all their fun and noise;
All the earth would be sad should it lose the happy boys,
There’s a place in the world for the boys.
2 Who laugh and shout when storms beat wild?
The boys, the boys, the healthy, happy boys.
Who stretch at ease when sun shines mild?
The boys, the lazy, careless boys. [Refrain]
3 Who make the men the world calls great?
The boys, the boys, the mischief-loving boys.
The gospel bring to those who wait?
The boys, the restless, eager boys. [Refrain]
