I've Never Been

BY Friscobeat

I've never been bitten by a flea.
Or seen a coelacanth at sea.
Ever seen a kangaroo?
No, not even in a zoo.
I've never been to Mozambique.
But I've been to Timbuktu.

I'd like to go to Vennitsa
or maybe gay Pairee.
I'd like to see a cricket match
with bowlers bowling
and wickets sticking.

Route 66 sounds mighty fine.
So does a sip of Texas wine.
There is nothing better than Ris De Veau
unless it's KFC to go.

But I'd trade all my eau de vie
for just one bite of OCCU-PIE.
Something like mincemeat, apple or pigeon
for us 99% it will bring religion.
