Something Stupid


Ninety years young!


She seemed pretty strong

As the day

She turned



Oh, I should’ve known

she wouldn’t have gone

for hi-jinx and hyper bellow.


But, I’m a son-of-a-gun,

If she wasn’t as strong,

As the one day

She was still



But now my heart breaks,

Cause I took her a cake.

And it turns out

she was just twenty-eight!


Imagine surprise,

She collapsed at my eyes;

And right there,

At twenty-eight,

She dies!


So, she wasn’t that strong;

She was still pretty young!


But, that’s the last time


   – I Swear! –


   I’ll be wrong.
