An excerpt …

(The chorus sings the Crawdad Song.)

BOYS: You get a line and I’ll get a pole, honey!

GIRLS: Honey?

BOYS: You get a line and I’ll get a pole, babe!

GIRLS: Babe?

ALL: You get a line and I’ll get a pole and we’ll go down to the crawdad hole, Honey, Oh, Baby, Mine.

BOYS: Yonder comes a man with a pack on his back, Honey.

GIRLS: Whose honey?

BOYS: Yonder comes a man with pack on his back, Babe.

GIRLS: Whose babe?

(A censor arrives.)

ALL: De Camptown ladies sing dis song, Doo-dah! Doo-dah! De Camptown racetrack nine miles long, Oh, Doo-dah Day!

CENSOR: Hold it!

JILL: What?

CENSOR: This is ridiculous. Doo-dah? Doo-dah?

JILL: Yes I do. Do you?

CENSOR: That’s not a question. Just what in the heck does Doo-Dah mean?

JILL: What’s the difference?

CENSOR: There’s a lot of difference! I’m the official speech contest censor.

JENNIFER: Censor?

CENSOR: Censor! It’s my job to keep all smut, sexist language and obscenity out of school assemblies.

ERIN: You gotta be kiddin’.

(The chorus tries another song.)

[SONG: Little Brown Jug]

ALL: Ha! Ha! Ha! You and me! Little brown jug how I love thee!

Ha ! Ha! Ha! You and Me! Little Brown Jug …

CENSOR: Uh-Oh! Uh-Oh! Uh---------Oh!

JIM: What’s the matter?

CENSOR: And just what do you have in that little brown jug?

JIM: How should I know?

CENSOR: Are you sure you should be drinking out of it then?

JIM: But it’s harmless!

CENSOR: Then how come it’s making you say “Ha! Ha! Ha!”
