Came out with a diamond. The other canaries did, too. Together,
they bought the mine."

"You retired?"

Take a hike to Hawick.
Have a walk in the park.
Take a stroll around a Maypole.
Have a jog in the fog and jump over a log.
Skip when eating a chip.
Run in a fun run dressed as a nun.

By the shores of Gucci Gimme,
With their sparkling vitamin water,
Stood the tent of dear old Nordstrom.
Dark behind it rose the Pine Mall,
Where the little Hiawatha
Hunted teddy bears in Pottery Barn Kids,
Chasing Minnie Ha Ha through Macy's.
