Hard Feelings in Homonym-ville

Last summer when you (towed) your three (toed), (toad) I'd not give a (cent) for the (scent), (sent) through the air Like when I dropped (chili) in (Chile) when it was (chilly), The old one didn't, but the (new)(gnu)(knew) it was there! So with sore foot, (I'll) walk the (aisle) on the (Isle) I (cite) the (sight) of this (site), can renew a man Look me in the (eye), (I) say, "(Aye), I'm ready!" You say, "I guess (he'll) (heal) his (heel) when he can!" If I (rode) in a boat I (rowed) in a ditch by the (road) Even until signs of (dew) seem (due), (do) you care? If (you're) still to hold to (your) feelings of (yore) I don't (buy) you'll stop (by) and say"(bye)", so there!
