I know my Damsel waits for me
Perhaps chained to some balcony 
If I could only find the Key
I could set her free

The castle walls are high, I hear
Guarded by some guys, I fear
How to get inside's unclear
Planning this could take a year

This castle might just have a moat
I have no money for a boat
I can not swim, not even float
Boy, this gets my goat !

And in the moat, may dwell a fish
That thinks that I'm a tasty dish
It's not wise to take such risk
A thought, I really must dismiss 

And if I got inside the gate
A dragon there, must surely wait
And eagerly anticipate 
To meet with me and seal my fate

On second thought, I think I'll stay
On bended knee, I'll hope and pray
That eventually I'll find a way
And rescue her some other day

    Ah! You mean she doesn't get her kiss, tis such a pity I say, not to worry, I hear she's planning an escape by moon's parlay, go coo her in by the rugby moon, and soon she will grow wings and fly, always love your light heart humor, so refreshing, have a great day, Jer the bear! xx ps love you're new avatar, cool glasses!x
