I remember the chorus and one verse:
Oh, Mister Mister Johnny Verbeck - how could you be so mean?
I told you you'd be sorry for inventing that machine.
Now all the neighbors cats and dogs, will never more be seen
You've ground them up into sausages - in Johnny Verbeck's machine
One day I went a-walking - walking down the street
I met a man with sausages who laid them on the floor
And then he began to whistle - whistle up a tune.
And all the little sausages went dancing around the room
One day he went a-walking - walking in his sleep
And Johnny Verbeck was meat!
[I can't remember the rest...does this get anyone started?]
