Little Piece of Wang Come all you sons of piety and listen to my dirge Some say it is a pack of lies, but it's gospel, every word When God made father Adam, sure He laughed and danced and sang And He sewed up Adam's belly with a little piece of wang Now when the job was over, God said, "I've measured wrong" For when the wang was knotted, it was just a bit too long God says, "I've made a blunder here, but I think I'll let it hang" And He left on Adam's belly, that little piece of wang And when it came to Mother, it fairly made Him smart For when the wang was knotted, it was just a bit too short God said, "It leaves a bit of a gap, but I won't give a damn She can fight it out with Adam for that little piece of wang" And ever since that glorious day when human life began It's been a constant struggle betwixt the woman and the man And if you ask the woman and the man, they will agree That they won't care if that battle lasts for all eternity wang = a narrow piece of leather used to sew the top of a shoe to the bottom. from AL Lloyd SOF
