One Sure Bet
It seems to me the sure way to bet
Is that once you’re comfortably, comfortably set
You’ll find that you are without your specs
You’ve picked up a book on Tibetan treks
You sneeze and you sneeze with no handkerchief
Your knee cramps up and there’s just no relief
Your telephone rings with no one to get it --
It was off this morning and you didn’t re-set it
Ahhh, plump the pillows and settle back
No more can happen, it’s all right, Jack!
You’ve taken care of all of that stuff
You’re set to sit here at peace on your duff
Knee, nose, specs, and you’ve got the right book
The telephone's set too, it’s now off the hook
The light is adjusted, it’s at a great angle
Your arms are tucked in and your feet are a-dangle
That’s when you hear from outside in the road
A sound like a rooster crossed with a toad
And then in the dooryard your own auto’s roar
The next thing you hear is a key in the door
And, quick as that, your kids come piling in
Right behind them -- your wife's best angry grin
Yep, thisis theonly one sure fire bet!
The world goes to hell just as soon as you’re set
