Tennis ball, canine salivation
And that's not all
Don't you be so perspicacious
Heath bar crunch
Soggy prophylactic
And ants on the munch

Let me tell you 'bout a man named Jumbo
6'4" and full o' muscle
He likes Ike and two homunculi
Borneo babes and tricycli

Stop, you're hurting me
It's not funny anymore
Oh, I had some bad broth

He's my friend
And my knee's on the mend
Hank's spaking plankton
And he does not have a hairnet yet

Up and down
Slam mellow craziness
My laughter and forgetting
Things I do not need to know

???
