"forget you ever knew me, frederick. i'm afraid that is the best advice i can give you.'
"but what about all the things i bought you - the diamonds, the dresses, the country estates?"
"i am afraid that is between you and your barrister."
"please let me off."
there was a young man from peru
who never knew what to do
when his shoes were untied
his smile was wide
and his eyes were celestially blue
there was a young maid from malay
whose behavior was quite outre
the townsfolk requested
that she be arrested
when she promenaded on the quay
during the sack of rome
attila decided to go home
to his men around a bonfire
he said, fellows i've decided to retire
there is something buzzing in my dome
there was a young man named mcgoof
who climbed on the courthouse roof
a cannon was trained
on his palpitating brain
and he disappeared with a poof
there was a young man from spain
with a throbbing jugular vein
when he got excited
his brain ignited
and his ears shot out purple flame
there was a young maid from bolivia
with the right proper name of olivia
when a highwayman approached
and on her carriage encroached
she said i'm sorry i've got nothing to give ya
a young man from asbury park
went to china on a lark
he caused an international incident
by enquiring where his napkin went
at a picnic in the emperors park
a young man from sunny mt pleasant
received a motor car for a christmas present
he took to the road
in a boisterous mode
and slaughtered a few dozen peasants

"take me with you," cried the little king, weakly.
all morning the troops had been filing under the balcony in their magnificent multicolored uniforms , red infantry, blue cavalry, green hussars, golden cavalry.
the dust settled in the street.
it was still morning.

an xquisite flower named xantippe
grew on the banks of the mississippi
but she ran out of luck
when she was casually plucked
by a passing dirty hippie
a yammering gorilla named yunk
walked into a tavern and plunked
his money on the counter down
announcing with a fervid frown
"the economy seems in a funk"
a zealous headwaiter named zane
was racing for the train
when a monstrous yellow hound
knocked him to the ground
and he was never heard from again
an arrogant inspector named auguste
found some unfortunate dust
on the windowsill
of ernie's bar and grill
and acted judiciously, we trust

a vicious doll named viv
was spurned by a spurious spiv
she sat in the vicars chair
with a sad and solemn stare
and had no donation to give
a wobbly elephant named willie
went out and drank himself silly
in a local pub
where they served weak grub
and the barmaids were all named millie
