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
