Something Stupid

~

Ninety years young!

 

She seemed pretty strong

As the day

She turned

Twenty-one.

 

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

Twenty-one.

 

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.
