Among My Souvenirs

Among My Souvenirs

Last week my honeymoon started:
I like a fool took a wife
But after the guests had departed
I took the shock of my life:

Out came her big glass eye
Her false teeth on the sly
She gently placed them down upon the chiffonier.
She then unscrewed her leg
And hung it on a peg
And oh my eyes were filled with many a bitter tear.
Her beautiful golden hair
She hung upon the chair
And what was left of her
Slipped in between the blankets.
I looked at her and said
I am not coming to bed
I'd rather sleep instead
Among my souvenirs...
