Phooey, phooey on all your noses!
Mom was smelling like four roses
Wandering 'midst the trash and junk
Falling down from being drunk
And none to help her up again
None to cover o'er her shame
Save me, her best-belov'd kid,
So help up is what I did.
And we set beneath the leafy tree,
Wondering why Amos can't pronounce "Rapaire".
I said that it was because his brain is numb,
But Mom replied, "Nah, he's just plain dumb."
