Boys Town

Am I late?
If ever in the world a man was on time.
Now, everybody sing.
Jingle bells, Jingle bells
Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

- Thank you, Father.
- Hello, Dave.

Hello, I came over as soon as I could.
What's up?
Now, let's get out of here, Dave.
It's pretty noisy.

Several new boys came in last week.
We're suffocating here.

Now, look, Eddie, just what do you want?
Dave, it's grand to see you.
You certainly have had a wonderful year,
haven't you?

It's been a wonderful year for both of us.
- Did you pay all your bills last month?
- Yes, sure. Most of them.

Skinny, what did I tell you
about biting your nails?

A few little odds and ends,
but I'll get the money for that.

That's what I was afraid of.
No, Dave,
that isn't why I wanted to see you.

No, I want you to take me for a little drive.
I want to show you something.

I'm a busy man.
That's just it, Dave.
Now, you've been working too hard...

with the new store and everything.
A little drive in the country will relax you.

Just what you need.
Just what we both need.

- Bye, Father Flanagan.
- Goodbye, boys.

Now remember what I told you.
Lovely country, isn't it?
Over 200 acres here of rich, fine soil.
You could really live and breathe out here.
- What about it?
- I want to buy it.

Now, look, Dave, I can get it cheap.
Just look at it, Dave.

We could build a real town
for the boys here.

They could have gardens, dormitories,
gymnasiums, classrooms...
