Based on my consulting this year’s almanac    
June 30th being the best possible day for a BBQ out back
I sent out invitations to everyone, I didn’t hold back

There was the lumberjack, the nymphomaniac
The humpback, the hunchback and the hypochondriac
The kleptomaniac, the hemophiliac and the insomniac
No reason to leave out the egomaniac and the pyromaniac    
Ooops and how could I almost forget our local amnesiac

I proposed a neighbourly exchange of paperback
I asked them all to contribute, call back or at least provide feedback

Eve of June 30th, gotta prepare my shack
Start to clean vigorously with ammoniac
Wash my floors and dust that miscellaneous bric-a-brac
To make room for guests, park my hatchback in the cul-de-sac    
Think of various games including kayak and piggyback
Find bowls for every possible sweet and snack
Think I might serve some type of aphrodisiac
Put together a musical playlist of 60’s and 70’s flashback
Get all set for a promising night of banter and wisecrack
I think I’ve thought of everything and I’m right on track
O gotta go… I think I hear the doorbell, that must be Jack
