October 31, 1983 - Hallowe'en memories of the good old days

A few of us young whipper-snappers
One year on Hallowe’en
Said let’s go do some dirty tricks
Just be sure we aren’t seen

We roamed around the country side
And found this old guy’s shack
We saw what we were looking for
‘Twas a little house in the back

We thought it would be lots of fun
To turn it on its side
We knew that we could do it
If all of us goons tried

We didn’t know he was inside
Doing what he later said
Was finishing up his evening chores
Before he went to bed

Then when we push it over
He gave an awful yell
We all took off across the field
We sure did run like h--l

When he finally crawled outside
He said “well bless my soul”
Then staggered all around the place
And fell into the hole

He got out, then went to the house
As fast as he could run
And on his way we heard him say
“I’m going to get my gun”

We kept on running and finally hid
Behind a big hay stack
I’ll never forget when we upset
That little house in the back

There's only one right end

This City boy from a place called Nome
Came out to the old farmer’s home

This Dude was really awfully green
Most things out there he’d never seen

He said “some milk would sure taste good”
The farmer said “I’m sure it would”

The farmer said “Boy you’re no fool
So take this pail and this milk stool

The herd is coming in right now
So get some milk fresh from the cow”

The boy walked up to the old cow’s head
“I’ve come to get some milk” he said

He patted the old cow on the head
And then the old cow smiled and said

“If you would like some milk my friend
You’ll have to go to the udder end”

October 12th 1492 - Helping Columbus Discover America

October tenth, Columbus Day?
That isn’t the right date
I don’t supposes Old Columbus care
What day we celebrate

I hope he’s resting easy and
It’s good that he can’t see
The mess we have made of the
Home of the Brave and Free

They say there’s forty wars right now
And the sad thing about this is
We just can’t keep our noses out
Of other peoples business

If Columbus and Queen Isabella
Heard all the things we’ve said
I’m sure that they would both be
Happy that they’re dead

Normal At Last

I’m finally back to normal
There’s sure a big change though
The treatment that I had to take
Sure made my whiskers grow

It sure is nice to go down town
Since the girls no longer hate me
And those old bums there on the street
No longer try to date me

They way the winter will be long
With lots of cold and snow
I may not shave again till spring
I’ll let my whiskers grow

I’ll quit dying them I guess
So they’ll turn gray because
I’ll then get me a real good job
Playing Santa Claus
