  • You can't act like a skunk without someone's getting wind of it.

  • She's the one who / Hennaed her hair; / And lived in hope, / But dyed in despair.

  • Sister was a little creature / Who never made a peep, / Until she was tucked in bed / And mom was fast asleep.

  • Getting a boy well groomed / Takes a lifetime a mother's way, / But the right young lady / Can do it in a day.

  • Sis is away at camp. / A letter from our dear: / 'Wish I was at home / Wishing I was here.'

  • Camping's fun. The outdoor life / Relaxes those who lead it; / So why send off the carefree kid, / When mom's the one who needs it?

  • Teen-agers have their hangups, / Every mother knows. / But one thing is for certain; / That doesn't include their clothes.

  • We met at a travel bureau / And we began to court — / I was looking for a vacation / And he was the last resort.

  • To pile your grocery cart up high, / I find there's nothing worse / Than going through the check line / And find you have no purse.

  • We have drive-in banks / And drive-in marketplaces, / But what we need more of / Is drive-in parking spaces.

  • When disagreements come our way / We just don't ever fight. / We calmly talk things over / To find out why I'm right.
