Hezekiah Munny

The story of Hezekiah Munny
Is one that’s really kind of funny

He married Olive Eo
First cousin to McMar
She didn’t have much money 
And she didn’t have a car

She loved dear Hezekiah
She would gladly have his name
But also quite attached, she was
To her given maiden name

Tell me what you want, my love
And what is your new name
Said she to Mr. Munny
Not glory neither fame

My desire and my name 
Are the same, Mr. Munny
What else do you think it’d be
Olive Eo Munny

And so they bred the finest brood
Not fond or Mr. Munny
There was Bern, DeMar and Helwit
I told you it was funny
