The Word's Gotten Around

Have you heard the recent...
And what's more...
Now that's not really decent...
What do you think's in store?

Well, I never, did you ever?
But what can you expect...
Just think they're awfully clever!
Some people have no respect.

The there's always this thing...
Well, forever more, can you believe?
Sure enough someone will sing...
What else will it achieve?

So the word's gotten around,
Surely all over town;
Makes someone the town clown,
Since the word's gotten around.

The Word's Gotten Around (c)2000 Quentin Clingerman
