There was a young woman
who knew what to do
she never had children
not one nor not two

she never looked in her cupboard
for her poor dog a bone
because this young woman
never owned even one

she never was poor
she never lived in a shoe
because this young woman
knew just what to do

she married a man
as rich as could be
he was a bit older
but he thought just as she

they shared their life
that was filled with laughter
and this odd couple
lived happily ever after.
Bob Mitchum
