I just know we’ll meet there, there, Around the Bend,
And everyone will call, call each other “Friend,
“And we’ll have a nice meal with some very good food,
I’m just sure we’re gonna meet there;
I know that we would.
And have a fine time, and we’ll sing happy songs,
And forget about differences;
we’ll have “get-alongs”
“Where everyone gets along and doesn’t protest or riot,
Or get sick or curse or have to do a diet.
There Around the Bend is just right over there,
With pleasures and fondness,
and accidents don’t dare,
To spoil this occasion, our happy remedy.
We’ll hug one another; we’ll even hug a tree.
