.... my ring, She said “Oh, you sweet thing!” All that for just one crummy line!! I guess it was not in Jane's mind, That her figure was so well defined. So she went to health clubs, For health food and back rubs, Now look; if you do, you'll go blind!! I guess it was not in Jane's mind, That her teeth were poorly aligned.

One can be carefree about their life, yet thinking is the most essential part of man. "If thought is life A .....
