"Eke Sheik"

I would have done things of useful truth Recalling all days of my youth Would have finished my spinach More muscle percentage Would have done my math Taken more baths More girl friends More gin Men? Would have been an Arabian sheik Romances would never be bleak Oil wells I would need not seek Fuel price would never peak My wives would be meek Speak to take leak Sandals reek Oh freak! Eke!! Surely no one desires life this led Lounging all day in roses bed Grapes by beautiful wives fed All nodding, go ahead Oh the awesome dread Of this life's tread Overhead Dream's stead Said!!
