IF YOU PULL A LONG FACE : Part XVIII IF you pull a long dopey face The least one can in this case say You don't belong to the eskimo race Who lament the sun sunk in iced bay Now if you pull that long limp face Hoping someone will notice your dismay Best not to peek through burka-nikah lace Take the next flight out of tent on any airway Yet if you keep pulling that long hangdog face Ev'ry chance you'd be called upon to act in a play For who knows how to imitate Droopy's face Who has heard of a cartoon dog star on Broadway If you pulled hard at that long hangdog face Through wearisome rehearsals day after day Fat chance you'll be nominated to play Scarface No long-faced dogs allowed on stage in Broadway So if you must pull that long hangdog face Make certain the collar the leash does not betray The long-buried wolf in the dog might surface And actors feast on wolf sans ShutDown back pay © T.
