Oh My Mom And Apple Pie

Oh, my mom and apple pie
Never met eye to eye
But it was her and her friend Barb
Who truly enjoyed the rhubarb
And thatís just fine
For this here rhyme

I Used To Think I Was Ogden Nash

I used to think I was Ogden Nash
I knew everything about me
Where I was born
And where I died
And who used to annoy me
I used to think I was Ogden Nash
I knew my middle name and all
And I would turn when ever anyone did call
I knew what I said about nuisances
And knew all about warts
But I did not know
About the Joe
Who was named G David Schwartz
I know he thought he was an author
Someone I should adore
But the truth to say
Any way anyway
He thought he was some one else
Someone other than himself
And called himself Ogden Nash
And he made love with my girlfriends
And had sex with my wife
Well that Schwartz guy
I do espy
Was a nincompoop for life

I Must Like The Grapes

I must like the grapes
I think of them a lot
And you know I like the wine
I said I like grasps a lot!
