Toothless Ruth Revisited



Forgive me, just some silly nonsense... You can have your Chatty Cathy Or Annie with the big Fanny But you can't have Tom Terrific You don't get it? That's uncanny! They gotta rhyme like Sarah Tiara Or Tammy who loves Salami There's the famous Roger Dodger And little old Hammie Sammy There's more, there's Skinny Minnie Or sweet li'l ole Flirty Gerty There's Amy who smells quite Gamey And how about Gurgling Bertie Have you heard of Picky Vicky Or tasty sweet Hannah Banana There's Mona Lisa Teresa And cute little Andy Panda Jerry at times can be Scary How about little Betsy Wetsy Buck who drives a great big Truck And Bessie who's extremely Messy So I've come to the end of my verses Oops! Forgot about Bob the Snob Bruce is saying my Goose is cooked And I'm trying hard not to sob! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Dragon's good at fending off bullies... One look at him and they slink away... So if you want we can come up and you can hook up to Dragon's Wagon... Bruce can play Goose, Goose with Dragon... Ought to be fun to watch... You might say Bruce's goose will be cooked... (Tho I might offer him a fire retardant suit before they begin) Don't want him too crispy... LOL... Say the word and we'll be there... With wings on... you might say... LOL
