Reasons To Be Cheerful - Part III

"In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican."

H.L. Mencken

Reasons To Be Cheerful - Part III

[Apologies to the completeists. Difficult to decipher and I can't find a definitive version on the 'net.]

Why don't you get back into bed

Reasons to be cheerful part 3

1 2 3

Some of Buddy Holly
The working folly
Good golly Miss Molly
and boats

Hammersmith Palais
The Bolshoi ballet
jump back in the ally
and nanny goats

(can't decipher)
dominate the camels
all other mammals
plus equal votes

Seeing Piccadilly
fanny smith and willy
being rather silly
and porridge oats

a bit of grin and bear it
a bit of come and share it
your welcome we can spare it
and yellow socks

To short to be haughty
to nutty to be naughty
going on forty
no electric shocks

The juice of a carrot
the smile of a parrot
a little drop of claret
anything that rocks

Elvis and scotty
the days when i ain't spotty
sitting on a potty
curing smallpox
