                   THE WRONG SWEET NECK


                  He made a bad one
                  Mistake that is--
                 Thought he was a
                  Lovin’ whiz

                  But this time
                  His lips nibbled on
                  The wrong sweet neck

                  Last Christmas his roving life
                  Became an HO train
                  Headin’ for a high speed wreck
                  Around the sofa
                  Headin across the kitchen floor
                  He saw his life
                  Flying to pieces at the feet
                  Of the woman he adored
                  Knew his tender hands
                  Aching every hour
                  Weren’t the only
                  Buzzin’ Bees humming
                  After that
                  Thorny deadly flower
