One morning recently
A young woman
Got out of bed
Slipped into her robe
Raised the shade
Uncovered the parrot
Put on the coffee pot
Answered the phone
And heard a masculine voice say:
“Hello, honey. My ship just hit port
And I’m coming right over.”
So the young lady
Took the coffee pot off the stove
Covered up the parrot
Pulled down the shade
Took off her robe
Got into bed
and heard the parrot mumble,
“Kee-rist, what a short day that was!”
