With scarce a thought beyond the hum-drum round,
I did my decent job and earned my pay;
Was averagely happy, I'll be bound.

That in my wild and wooly youth I knew them ladies well.

I wish I was a poet like the men that write in books
The poems that we have to learn on valleys, hills an' brooks;

An' when the kids recited them the folks would call them grand.
