People With Extra Long Necks

Now here's an unusual sight, my friends
People with extra long necks
Much like giraffes you see at the zoo
A really strange sight, by heck

They drive convertibles for obvious reasons
It sure ain't so great in the snow
Their houses are rather tall and skinny
How they sleep at night, no one knows

There's advantages to having an extra long neck
Especially at a sporting event
Till the people behind start throwing things
Which there's gotta be a way to prevent

There's a pill that's just come on the market
To help shrink 'em down to size
But the side effects are quite disastrous
It increases your bum and your thighs

Now you can fit into a normal size car
But you take up the whole front seat
That sure is better than a neck like a giraffe
That's ridiculous, for the love of Pete!
