What did Fibber McGee say to Liar McGuire?
Of petty fallacies the two will never tire
I wont harp on that but I'll play my lyre
Perhaps chew gum that the Spanish call chicle
Or toast a slice of dark rye bread, pumpernickel
Maybe I'll suck an Orange Crush or popsicle
I asked myself when feeling somewhat fickle
Is now the time to cash the coin, a Buffalo nickel?
Daydreaming I see bison on my mind's horizon
Confirming awake my ISP was Comcast not Verizon
Backwards, backwards, Oh Time in your flight
Make me a youngster if only dreaming tonight
Yes! It's time! Drop the Glock maybe repair the clock
No! It's not going to Mars! Shoot for the stars!
