My dad was moving boxes
He said, “Give me a hand”
I really need them both
What a curious demand

My boyfriend’s disappointed
Says his team got creamed
What were they doing at the dairy?
I guess that’s why he screamed

A person on the sidewalk
Asked me for some bread
But if I give him money
He could buy a meal instead

My neighbor said her brother
Gets all bent out of shape
He needs a chiropractor
Or perhaps some ankle tape

My friend got dressed up fancy
Said she’s gonna paint the town
Wouldn’t it make more sense
To wear a dusty gown?

I took my sister to the beach
She said, “Let’s catch some rays”
I didn’t buy this bikini
For fishing on the bay

Sometimes folks are careless
And their brains aren’t very keen
People talk so silly
Like they don’t know what words mean
