Homer never shut his mouth He talkedfromrise to rest,
He chattered north, and drawled to south He nattered east and mumbled west
He talked so much nobody heard A thing he said all day
No one caught a single word That Homer had to say
Poor Homer spent his life like that I think it’s sad, don’t you?
One time he went and bought cat To tell his troubles to.
That seemed all right at first and yet After spending one long day
Hearing Homer, that was it for the pet And the feline went astray
One day young Homer lost his voice Because he had a cold
That day he met a new group of kids Much nicer than the old
But he could only nod or shake his head And smile, so in the end
The kids heard all that Homer said And were glad he was their friend
The moral I want to pass your way The jewel that here will glisten
Is the fewer things you have to say The more that folks will listen.
