Cold Duck on da Floor

Hic, burp, dadgumit Weared dat cocktail napkin go Wanted ta git 'er phone numbr Ineabriated pen fell to da floor, Taking da napkin, too Ah, well, I’ll jest go over ta that fine lady Oops! Freakin’ pen rolled neath ma feet Crash! Yep, write on da floor I set Oh no, she’s a-lookin’ my way At dis humbling floor display I wave; she smiles But wen I git ta my feet, she’s gone Blasted fallin’-doun-drunk pen led me on No moore goose chases fer me Bartender, Ill take ma Cold Duck on da floor

ha ha - very funny! I've had a cold duck tapping on my window today, with three ducklings. They're full of bread right up to the beaks. In other word duck rolls. They have to grow quickly in the early days. I liked your cold duck better.
