Once Upon A Day
A beautiful lady and handsome young manly,
Got married and lived in a house near the dam.
Nine children took turns coming into the family,
Brilliantly minded as good children can be.
They bought a nice farm and raised children just dandy!
Raised chickens and cows and two dogs and a nanny,
And piglets and cats and two rabbit's huge family!
They didn't have money they didn't have candy,
But ice-cream was sometimes brought home by the manly.
No cute little phones, to be held in the hand,
No texting or 3-D throughout our great land.
The manly is gone now and so too the lady,
Each year though, somebody's got a new baby!
So that is the story, though not told too grandly,
Of the beautiful lady and handsome young manly.
