Put a sock in it


In my wisdom it occurs to me
That a pair of socks should come in three,
It has always struck me as being queer,
How one sock seems to disappear,
If they had three socks per pair,
There would always be a sock to spare,
And so `twould minimize the shock
Of another disappearing sock.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
