312.Check Mate!

I like men! Honestly! But they're particularly useful when it comes to making jokes!


Young Billy came home with a car
And Billy was only thirteen!
It was parked in the drive
And, heavens alive,
It caused a most terrible scene!
His Mother said 'You're just a child!
How could you have come by a car!'
And Father said 'Son
It cannot be done!
The whole thing is really bizarre!
Not only a car but a Porsche!
And not only that but brand new!
Now let's get this straight!
If there's one thing I hate
It's dishonest dealings from you!
Did you steal any money my boy?
Come on now, look me straight in the eye!'
Said Billy 'I had
Enough money Dad!
It wasn't expensive to buy!
It was just fifteen dollars that's all,
And I easily had that to pay.
I just paid the cash
And then, in a flash,
I was in it and driving away!'
'Just give us the name and address'
Said Mother, still out of her mind.
'Right from the first
I was fearing the worst!
These people are tricksters, we'll find.'
Later on Mother found the right house;
She knocked and a woman came out.
'So you are the one
Sold a Porsche to my son!'
Said the Mother ' Well! What's it about?'
I'll explain' the young woman replied,
Not looking at all disconcerted;
'I'm here on my own;
Tom, my husband has flown
To Hawaai. Yes, I've been deserted.
He's run-off with a dizzy young blond!
He tells me he's not coming back.
At first I felt mad
And a tiny bit sad
But I'm getting my life back on track.
Well, this Monday a letter arrived.
Would I please sell his wonderful car.
So he'll then make a splash
With our mutual cash!
Spending most, I've no doubt, at the bar!
When I saw your young lad in the street
I asked him how much he could pay.
Fifteen dollars! Yippee!
That was just right for me!

It should reach Honolulu  today!

I wonder if Tom will be singing the blues? Lol!

Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz ?
My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends.
Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends,
So Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz ?
