"1800's Alabama"

1800's, Alabama! What a great place and time!
We're so happy that we live in 1800's Alabama 'cause it's sunny and there is no crime!

And in this little town in 1800's Alabama there's a family by the name of Keller!
Their daughter's deaf and mute and blind as a bat, and her parents can't even tell her!

"Water Helen Water"

She did it! She did it! Water! Water water!
Water, Helen, Water.
We can't believe she did it. The dumb kid really did it.
Water, Helen, Water.
