see how it all is tiresomeness
oh I assure you yes it is shouldn't we
all sit in here while the quality of time
elapses progresses or should we say leaps
I was going to say elopes or even lopes
heh heh snicker ah well then it is
all decided it's a foregone conclusion you can
just sit here say it'll be a few laughs
how about a game of canasta bridge or whist
we'll just have to say a few bouts of television to pass the time
