I’m sorry, I didn’t catch you name
‘Yellow, but my friends call me Yell”
Say again? I didn’t quite hear you
“Yellow!! But my friends call me Yell!!”
There’s certainly no need to yell at me sir
“Sh-t…I said Yellow!! But my friends call”…
Ahh, I see, so you’re a yellow fellow then?
“Okay whatever, yeah, I’m a yellow fellow”
Well, there’s nothing at all to be afraid of sir
“You givin’ me a SEVERE case of the red ass here!”
A red donkey? Might I suggest a paint job?
“You and me are fixin’ to visit the hospital bud”
Well, I’m certainly no doctor but it could be jaundice
“You’re fixin, to NEED a doctor, you yellow bellied”…

By the way, do you remember that song Mellow Yel…
(Slam-bam-ooof)-----“Yep, Donovan did it"...
