.........................Fairy Tale Sillyosophy
Hey diddle, diddle, the cat and the fiddle,
The Brahma jumped over the moon...
Got into Stephen's territory and was
Classified a comet, an extraterrestrial...
So much for cows.
But, the moon jumped over the Brahma,
And was classified as a reincarnated
Butterfly...careful who jumps over who, here...
Fairy tale, fairy tale, what have you to say?
Wishing on a falling star...what has that to do
With rings and strings and ceiling wax...
Ceiling wax? Uh, what is ceiling wax, anyway...
Integral portions of molecular structure...
Little Red Riding Hood went to the shore,
Little Red Riding Hood met Eliot's mermaids,
But they sang each to each, ignoring her...
Too bad. She trudged on down to Emerald City
And met a much better wizard, horse of a
Different color, and married the Cowardly Lion.
Fairy tale, fairy tale, what have you got to say...
Simple Simon met a pie man heading to the fair...
Said Simple Simon, 'May I have your wares...'
Pie said, '...no, but you can pay and pay and pay.'
Pie was in a recession...Pie was a democrat.
Enough of morning chat. Got milk? Got a job?
Louisiana is overloaded with jobs, so
Come on over to my state of affairs...uh, how
Is the UN these days? Swine flu...thought that
Was the term for Al Quida, or however you
Spellllllllllll that...okay, Afganistan, Bin Laden,
And North Korea...got nuclear?
Good Morning! Good Morning!
