Thread Name: Children's Street Songs
Subject: RE: Children's Street Songs
There's a place on Mars where the women smoke cigars
and the men wear bikinis and the children drink martinis
every breath you take is enough to kill a snake
when the snake is dead you put diamonds on his head
when the diamonds crack you put mustard on his back
when the mustard fades you call the king of spades
and the king of spades says STOP!

- - -

Repeat each line

The prettiest girl (repeat)
I ever saw (repeat)
was sippin ci- (repeat)
-der through a straw (repeat)

I asked her if (repeat)
She'd show me how (repeat)
to sip that ci- (repeat)
-der through a straw (repeat)

so cheek to cheek (repeat)
and shin to shin (repeat)
we sipped that ci- (repeat)
-der through a straw (repeat)

then suddenly (repeat)
that straw did slip (repeat)
so we sipped ci- (repeat)
-der lip to lip (repeat)

the moral of (repeat)
this little tale (repeat)
is sip you ci- (repeat)
-der through pail (repeat)

In all honesty, neither of the rhymes make much sense, but whatever, they get stuck in your head.
