Camptown Races or Eh, That's a Joke, Son!

"Camptown Races sing this song, Do Dah! Do Dah!" ( sung incessantly by a certain, unique rooster.) Henry Hawke: ( Sung to Holly Jolly Christmas:) " I'll be there and back by sunset. There's a chicken there for me! Mom and Dad will be proud, you bet! when a chicken, they'll see!" Henry: ( Sung to Arkansas Traveler:) " I think that there's a chicken, yes, indeed! No need to check, that's a chicken, yes, siree! I know that that's a chicken , yes, indeed! Even though he has a snout for pecking at the seed!" POW! ( cue woozy music.) Barnyard Dog: Hey, wait a minute, kid! Have you flipped your lid!" Henry: " I hit you a good one and I'm the winner! Now come along with me! You're what's for dinner!" Barnyard Dog: " Eh, kid.. I'm a dog, don't you get it! Now, scram! Before I make you regret it!" " Camptown races, sing this song.. I say , I say.. it's not the words, son, it's the song It kind of.. eh, moves me along, err.." Henry: " Oh, the shame! The family name! Life for me will never be the same!" Barnyard Dog: " Someone's given you the bum steer!" He looks at Henry crying. " Kind of gets you right here.. Tell ya, what, kid! I'll give you a real clucker with all the feathers! Now listen to me, the sooner the better.." Pss. psst. pss.. "Camptown Races, Uhh, oh, I say, I say.. What do we have here?! An unholy alli, alli alli, joining together. and the word is ..Beware!" I say, son! What are, what are you doing here in my little slice of paradise?!" Henry: "Ehh, Mister Cock-a-Doodle Doo.. I'd turn around if I were you!" "Heh, heh heh.. Obviously, this boy believes that I was born yesterday if not the day before! Let me lead him on a little more.." "Just what am I supposed to see, there, ehh, son? The rising moon? The setting sun? Heh, Heh, Heh.." BAM! "I, I, I think I've been way layed. I, I, better look for some shade.." PLOP! "That boy's got more nerve than a bum tooth! ehh, that's a joke, son! Miss Prissy! My my time has come too soon!" Eeee, THUD! Henry and Barnyard Dog( together.): "Geez, What a maroon!" Cue the Looney Tunes end music. (" Eer.. That's your cue, son!") " Can't find no good cartoon help these days!" THUD! THAT'S ALL FOLKS!

No need to worry Gerard ..I am posting on two other sites besides Soup now as my poetry demands have become quite intense and in demand on the other sites so am splitting my time between all three.. and don't u worry.. I luv the NFL and watch ALL the games and sports commentaries and news faithfully so I do believe they will go on strike along with u... in the meantime lets try to get our teams in place for whatever time they do play... GO GIANTS!!! luv.. "Sweetheart"

Lots of silliness like in those old cartoons in this one, Gerard. I could envision some of the cartoon characters speaking this way from my childhood cartoon days. Congratulations. LUv, andrea
