Fresh Scubahdulas

Lawrence S. Pertillar 1947 (Connecticut)

It takes,
Fresh scubahdulas.
To make,
Fresh scubahdulas.
To taste,
Better than cake made.
In the mind,
Wanted to dine.

But what's a scubahdula.
So delicious to crave?'

A peanut butter sandwich made.
To think of it as a T-bone steak.
Medium to well cooked.
And even though this is wished?
A fresh scubahdula comes to dismiss,
Even water to drink...
Isn't water at all,
But the finest of wine..
Found at the top one's list.

And that's a scubahdula to me.
To make me walk tall,
Like I'm wearing new boots!
And that's a scubahdulah to me.
Strutting around,
With the same boots on my feet.
And that's a scubahdula to me.
What I put in my mind is mine to believe.
And that's a scubahdula to me.
In my mind to stay believed!
