 Perry Campanella


There once was a lady so thin
she wanted to solve a crime
while setting at that Bar,
only couldn't find her lime,

Try hard as she would - to remember
only made her all the more slender,
so much so - she slipped through her
straw an fell in.

Now while there - she tried to compare
her lime - now found from an olive -
only to have swallowed her ice cube in there...
it floated her above an over her glass rim

Now on her chair it all didn't matter
so she ordered another
this time without a lime - an became fatter
Now when asked to pay for this one an that other

Why she said didn't you hear "Crime Doesn't pay"
