Henry’s Toy Poem Lullaby

If Barney Fife was deputy
of these here United States,
he’d put more soldiers to sleep

in a veterinary sort of way.
Meow, meow, meow,
bow, wow, wow.

I don’t need a cat,
I want my money back.
I don’t want a dog

or a Calaveras jumping frog.
I just want
my sons and daughters back.
