LOW VOLTAGE

LOW VOLTAGE

I need to charge my lap top up,

I didn’t have the chance,

I got off-line quickly

To put on my work pants…

I’ve done a lot already

This Monday afternoon,

I’ll take some time to work on lines

And then be back real soon!

I’ll take some time to work my lines

And then be back REAL SOON!

JONATHAN’S PANTS!

JONATHAN’S PANTS are falling down,

Falling down,

Falling down,

Jonathan’s pants are falling down

With too much in his pockets!

If he needs to hitch them up,

Hitch them up,

Hitch them up,

If he needs to hitch them up

His belt can be pulled tighter!

You can see his underwear,

Underwear,

Underwear,

You can see his underwear,

If his shirt’s akilter!

For his birthday got the pants and belt,

Pants and belt,

Pants and belt,

For his birthday got his pants and belt…

Aren’t you glad they fit him?

A CORDUROY SKIRT & JACKET

A  CORDUROY SKIRT AND JACKET

(sing to THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS)

A corduroy jacket

And skirt are going to be

The next sewing project

My love does, you see…

She’ll make it from material

That cost a lot of “dough”

But I do like the pattern

And will love her in it so!

Oh, the patterned blue fabric,

A fancy corduroy…

Is worth the glow in her eyes

When I paid for this joy;

She’ll have her new sewing machine

Which I guess I’ll set up too,

And help her with the making of

Until the set is through!

We can’t afford to hire help

Except for a tip or two,

This pattern cost a lot to get

But she’s not feeling blue…

Except to say my illness brought

Her project to a halt,

Just taking over for her love

She did not find me fault.

My BLUE SAPPHIRE OF JOHNSBURG (see Archives!)

Is the best one for me,

She takes up the slack I bore

And responsibility…

The least I can do for my love

Is allow a corduroy bolt,

To help her smile a good long while

And scamper like a colt!  😀

DISCHARGED!

DISCHARGED !

(Tune used: “REDEEMED HOW I LOVE TO PROCLAIM IT”)

Discharged, how I love to proclaim it…

Discharged to be free at last,

I missed out on most winter driving…

The worst of the snowy storm blast!

DISCHARGED !

DISCHARGED !

The nurses have relinquished control…

The foot is healed,

My future’s revealed,

So glad to be once again whole.
