What's in a Name

My wife says I'll never be famous 'Cause Whiskurz is a stupid name I said, "That's not what my parents called me" She said, "Your real one is just as lame" "You'll never be a William Shakespeare, Longfellow, Frost or Poe" "You won't even be a Dr. Seuss, I hate to have to tell you so" I said, "Whiskurz is easy to remember" She said, "That's just a dumb excuse" I said, "At least I don't just make names up, What is a Dr. Seuss?" She just shook her head and walked away While I pondered what she had said I yelled, "It doesn't really matter who they were, 'Cause like Elvis, they're all dead" So I'll change my name to Elvis But if I get sued, she's the blame I still think Whiskurz is easy to remember But I guess it won't bring me fame
