I Love Corned Beef
I love corned beef - I never knew
How good the stuff could taste in stew!
I love it wet, I love it dry.
I love it baked and called meat pie
I love it camouflaged in hash
A hundred bucks I'd give in cash
To have a barrel of such chow
A standing here before me now
I say "Yum Yum" when "soupie" blows
I sniff & raise aloft my nose
Corned Willie! Ha! Oh boy that's fine
Can hardly keep my place in line
I kick my heels & wildly yell:
"Old Sherman said that "War is Hell,"
But gladly would I bear the heat
If corned beef I could get to eat.
I love it hot, I love it cold
Corned Willie never will grow old
I love it - now pause - listen friend
When to this war there comes an end
And peace upon the earth shall reign
I'll hop a boat for home again
Then to a restaurant I'll speed
