What's out in the wide world yonder,
Though it's the same air,
Is the grass greener there?
Soon, just perhaps, I will wander.

Who had an immoderate mouth
But in swallowing a dish
That was quite full of Fish

He gives you powder, dose and pill,
Your tongue consults,
Then feels your pulse,
And he is always "dressed to kill!"

It is close to where I am from
So one day I went
And energy I spent
And now I can say it I clumb

Once bit a rear-admiral in two
Then smiled, "Bless my heart!
That's not a bad start,
And I've got the whole afternoon too!"

They flapped in a V formation
On the way to their winter vacation
When the icy winds blew
Due south they all flew
And they honked in keen exhortation

Who was chock full of what is called blarney
