While one of Bob’s daughters bought him a wardrobe of new shirts.
The other one said, “I know what to do, I’ll make him some desserts.”
While the first daughter gave him polo’s that made him look so neat,
Then the second got busy in her kitchen and baked him things to eat.
Through the year Bob lapped up his desserts like cream for a cat,
And his shirts started to grow tight because he was getting fat.
Next year for Christmas the daughters knew just what to buy,
And everyone who saw said that Bob was one lucky guy.
One daughter bought him clothes in the next bigger size,
And the other one got him equipment to help him exercise.
If you would ask the daughters about his fluctuating pounds,
They’d tell you that this idea wasn’t as dumb as it sounds.
You see this yo-yo weight scheme was their plan right from the start,
So each Christmas they’d have something to warm their old man’s heart.
