Gotta Laugh So I Don't Cry
I gotta laugh...
so I don't cry when I recall
the day you and I knocked the Dan Quayle gaffe
Dad, we sure had a ball!
You've been gone almost two years; still miss you like mad!
I'm sifting through my memory bank, somewhat sad
Though pangs of grief isn't as bad...
Anymore, Dad. Thanks for the memories and laughs
*The "Dan Quayle gaffe"(too many to count!) I was referring to specifically was Quayle altering an 8th grader's correct spelling of "Potato" to "Potatoe"*
