Mary Had A Little Ham - Invited Me For Dinner

My lady friend Mary invited me over one day to have a little ham
So, I put on my big heavy coat and my fur hat and grabed a digital cam
It was late in November and the streets were white with snow
But when Mary invited me over for some ham, I was sure to go
Now I also want to mention that come spring little Mary
Becomes a different person, quite to the contrary
Last spring I asked her, Mary, Mary...(she's hard hearing) "how does your garden 
grow?"
Well, she just went sort of weird on me and and replied: "sheeps in the meadow 
and cows in the corn"........  
I could tell that she was a "Little Girl Blue",  so I just went over and for her I did 
blow my horn
But after a little while (the ham was gone)..  so Jack (me) I was nimble about it and 
sort of quick
I turned all of a sudden and just jumped right on over her candle stick
I had my digital camera with me though and did take her picture, but no more talk
And what do you know when I steped outside I ran right into this bean stalk....
Well it was more than I could resist, so I climbed it....  and so it just went on and on 
Till it was gone.........   And so am I............     Real Gone.........
