mervin loved the movies
he loved popcorn even more
and when they were together
it was something he adored
 
but prices were ascending
with his budget in descent
it got hard to justify
the money that he spent
 
he went to see a movie
but the popcorn stand he shunned
he didn't have the moolah
in his entertainment fund
 
but he so missed his popcorn
that it made the film seem bad
he'd lost all concentration
and this really made him sad
 
he thought of sneaking popcorn
but this notion just misfired
it was against the rules
and rules were something he admired
 
so next time at the movies
the attendant, he disturbed
and asked to buy some popcorn
which he took back to the curb
 
when people left the exit
if poor mervin's eye they caught
he walked right up and asked them
all about the movie's plot
 
now most folks hurried onward
giving him a worried stare
but sometimes someone friendly
took the time to stop and share
 
and every week he did this
he became a frequent sight
the popcorn lady saw him
and took pity on his plight
 
she said she'd heard his story
and she had a plan in mind
she was a lonely lady
and she thought him just her kind
 
a perk of her employment
was free popcorn every day
and she'd be glad to share it
so he wouldn't have to pay
 
and if he came on thursday
that's the day that she had free
then she would sit beside him
if he thought he might agree
 
and he found the thought delightful
that's exactly what was done
movies, popcorn AND a girlfriend
could one ask for much more fun ?
