To harden my dick
Maybe topless pix
Of that Star Trek chick.

and a bail of hay
And a bail of reefer
And a bucket of booze
And all of Imelda
And a swimming pool
And a great big house
And an autographed photograph
Of Mickey Mouse.
Add me to the list!
And what ever you do,
Just please oh please
Can't you send me a clue?
