The politicians get your goat
And stew it up to buy your vote;
And that, my friend, is all she wrote
Concerning mulligan stew.
You'll swallow anything you're fed -
You need an implant for your head -
But what you're going to get instead
Is good old mulligan stew.
Donald Trump and Vlad Poo-ten -
I've been screwed by lesser men -
It's just I can't remember when...
...I dine on mulligan stew.
Heave ho and up she rises,
Flies in the buttermilk, what'll I do?
Skip to the lou and up she rises,
Heave ho mulligan stew.
Every time we rendezvous
I love her, and she loves you,
And you love bowls of mulligan stew,
Good old mulligan stew.
Standing by my bank in Prague
With my goldfish and my dog,
Living so high on the hog -
High on mulligan stew.
Does any man deserve his fate
Because his brain is out of date?
Just let it go - it's far too late -
And eat your mulligan stew.
-- C. C. Thistlethwaite
