As Christmas is nearly here, I am sitting and listening to Christmas music. When “The Twelve Days of Christmas” comes around, I can’t help but laugh at an acquaintance of mine some time back. He had just gotten a divorce and came up with NEW words to the old tune.
Now I do not remember the entire thing (this was probably forty years ago), what I DO remember goes like this:
On the eight day of my divorce,
My ex-wife took from me,
Eight place settings,
Seven credit cards.
FIVE POWER TOOLS!
Four radial tires,
Three bedroom home,
Two little children.
And my stereo and my color tv!
I wish I could remember the rest of it…
