Seventh Inning Stretch
Written: by Tom Wright
I once knew a man, first name Harry,
A “Cubbie” fan, last name was Carey
He sang at each Cub game,
When the 7th inning came,
And was never mistaken for a canary;
“Take me out to the ball game”
I sense a Napoleon complex
As Joe the canary his wings flex
He stretches tall and proud
Squawks and shrieks really loud
At the Seagull who has huge, huge pecs
Joe the Yellow Canary
Lives next door to sweet Mary
A frog came in her house
Poor Mary gave a big rouse
Joe gave a shriek like fury
Knew a young lady named Cherie
Had an attitude that was always merry
Tripped on a stone
Broke a few bones
She certainly didn't sing like a canary

Once a witch from Dunderry
Rode on something quite scary.
Did it sing did it dance
Did it wear checkered pants,
Twas a yellow canary.
Eating sensibly is the name of the game
No more gorging, that's not good for our frame
Getting lithe as a fairy
Singing like a canary
Happy as poop I'm no longer shamed
A famous TV star is called 'Big Bird'
At Thanksgiving he's at a loss for words --
His fellow birds are eaten
Down is his spirit beaten --
What eight-foot canary is not absurd?

Just saying my canary was alive before you got here
Could it be your perfume? No offence to you, my dear
Common sense has eluded me
Need more tact I agree
Should have said, you're prettier that you appear!
A tone-deaf woman in Tucumcari
made a wish to sing like a canary
Her perpetual sadness
has now turned to gladness
It’s just eat, tweet and be merry!
Saw Trump In A Cemetary
We just saw Trump in a cemetary
Looking at grave of his cute canary;
With all his followers;
Blooming idiot flowers;
Moved to city declared a sanctuary.
Judy said her friend's perfume was much too severe
Her canary Tweeter, was alive before she got there
Loved Tweeter so much
He was so old, he needed a crutch
Flew with a limp, I cried when he died, buckets of tears
Bush Had Become Legendary
In choir, Bush was known to be legendary;
Had heard he could sing just like a canary;
Scare cows who they did milk daily in dairy.
He never tried to milk anyone and was the
kindest President we will have ever known.
Three manic morons: Moe, Curly, Larry
Ante up for a talking canary ~
It attracts boobirds
They cry, 'How absurd' ~
Clever jokers rename her 'Miss Carrie'
