Treasure Island

Susan Sparks

(July 8,1957 / Fort Leavenworth, Kansas)

Jeremiah REALLY is a Bulldog

Jeremiah NEVER was a bullfrog
But he WAS a good friend of mine.
Jeremiah REALLY is a bulldog
And of this thing I did decide:

If he ever was the King of the World
Then this is what he'd do:
He'd eat all the cats
Who ate all the rats
And turn it all into Mulligan's stew.

Joy to the World
To all the frogs and dogs now
Joy to the birdies way up in the air.
Joy to ANYONE who would dare
To live life freely
Oh yes indeedy
Joy to the World! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

May the bluebird of happiness
NEVER rain on your parade.
ALWAYS keep an eye up to the sky
Otherwise little birdie might serenade
You with a little birdie pie
In your eye.

Joy to the World now.
It's time to take a bow now.
Joy to the fishes
In the deep blue sea
And may all your little wishes

May ALL your dreams come true.

    Haha! I love this Susan! My dad's name was Jeremiah and you brought back some great memories as my three sisters and I used to sing this very loudly when we were kids! I love the birdie pie in the eye line! Great job! (Report) Reply

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
