YOUR MAMA

YOUR MAMA DON,T WEAR NO DRAWERS
I SAW HER WHEN SHE TOOK THEM OFF.
SHE PUT THEM IN A TRUNK
AND OUT JUMPED A SKUNK.
SHE PUT THEM ON THE LINE
THE SUN REFUSED TO SHINE.
SHE PUT THEM ON A TRACK
AND THE TRAIN BACKED BACK.
SHE PUT THEM IN THE TUB
AND THE SOAP REFUSED TO SCRUB.
YOUR MAMA DON'T WEAR NO DRAWERS.
