    The Land Of Milk And Honey

    If you want your kids to grow up and be smart
    Don't give them milk and honey
    Give them a rock, seed and a cup of water
    Smash the rock into small pieces
    Pour it into the cup of water, mix it
    Place the seed in it
    That's how you can make your kids grow.
