A Madly Aunt Tail

(For all those loved Alzheimer's victims. For my dear Aunt Zela and my own incredible mother and for me.) Two blind trailing stockings dear and mismatched earings in your ears Fire up the blinchiki as we belong to purity Never lose your necklace key or try to play on sympathy But always wear your underwear and never steal and never swear. Dress me as a bumble bee Cause I love you and you love me. The rest of them can fall for free as cherries from a cherry tree. Will you won't you please remember Don't wear shorts it is December Don't put on two pairs of stockings just to go out wandering walking Don't wear one on one leg dangling and leave the other sadly hanging Don't you cry or suffer loudly You've lost your mind but not your body. Don't forget I love you so and no one here could ever know Once you've broken in my heart We're one and one-we never part. So rest it easy now my dear and never cry and never fear. I love you and you love me and that's the way it'll always be
