Thread Name: What did you sing as a kid?
Subject: RE: BS: What did you sing as a kid?
Another "Harrigan" verse my mother(!) taught me as a kid--

D-A-V-E-N-P, O-R-T spells davenport, davenport.

It's the only decent place to wait on, wait on

Even better place to have a date on, date on.

D-A-V-E-N-P, O-R-T you see

It's a hug and a squeeze and an "Oh Johnny! Please!"

Davenport for me.

(For those of you who don't know, a davenport is a sofa or couch.)
