Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Roaches and Bedbugs?
standing on the corner doing nothing wrong
along came a policeman and took me by the arm
he brought me to a little box and rang a little bell
along came the wagon and took me to my cell
I woke up in the morning and looked upon the wall
the bedbugs and the cockroaches were having a game of ball
the score was 6 to nothing the bedbugs were ahead
a cockroach hit a home run and knocked me out of bed
I went downstairs for breakfast, the toast was hard and stale
the coffee taste like tobacco juice.
