“My daddy left home when I was three,
And he didn't leave much to ma and me,
Just this old guitar, and an empty bottle of booze.
Now, I don't blame him cause he run and hid,
But the meanest thing that he ever did,
Was before he left, he went and named me Sue.”
A Boy Named Sue
Well, my lovely wife, Mean Tall Woman,
Had really taken a likin to our new kitten;
She was a pamperin, and a fussin over her,
By our little Tiger Lily, she was really smitten.
So, bein the extremely good husband that I am,
I decided to check her little Tiger Lily, fer fleas;
But when I began to examine her, up real close,
A real teensy, almost invisible, scrotum, I did see.
“Hey there, Mean Tall Woman!” I shouted real loud,
“I really think there’s somethin here, you need to see!”
And when I stuck that itsy bitsy kitty scrotum in her face,
The look of horror on her face, made me laugh hysterically.
“You’ve got to be kidding me, Little Big Man,
Are you tellin me my sweet Tiger Lily, is a male?”
I began laughin so hard, I nearly peed my pants,
As my wife’s shock, made her Apache face turn pale.
“And I really think we do need to change his name, real fast,
Callin him ‘Tiger Lily’ just won’t be good, for this little boy.”
So, after gettin over her shock and dismay, she finally shouted,
“Fine. We’ll call him Pee Wee; and I bet you’re now overjoyed.”
And I guess now, I’m just gonna have to apologize to my Ed Sister;
Her tiny namesake is now ‘Pee Wee,’ and he’s one tough little Mister.
PS: I’ll let the readers of this saga guess,
What I discovered about Pee Wee’s siblings;
But I will tell you the one we had named Jersey,
Does seem to like Barbie Dolls, and lacey things!
