The Escapade Lyrics

There was one who was famed for the number of things
He forgot when he entered the ship:
His umbrella, his watch, all his jewels and rings,
And the clothes he had bought for the trip.

He had forty-tow boxes all carefully packed,
With his name painted clearly on each;
But since he omitted to mention the fact,
They were all left behind on the beach.

He came as a Baker; but owned, when too late-
And it drove the poor Bellman half mad-
He could only bake Bridecake -for which, I may state,
No materials were to be had. I came as the Baker on this escapade,
I knead the dough, but I can't look after the bread,
The Banker does it instead,
And although I never feel afraid,

Somehow I know
It could be the single worst mistake I've ever made,
To come as the Baker on this escapade.

Writer(s): JAMES SAMUEL III HARRIS, JANET DAMITA JO JACKSON, TERRY LEWIS
