|Is you is or is you ain't?
No matter how I try, I just cain't
get the hang of putting each comma
in its right place. What a drama!
Just 'cuz you editors has the power,
sittin' up there in your ivory tower,
to trash manuscripts by the reams,
don't give you no right to squash my dreams.
Again I asks 'bout the word pictures I paint.
Is you is or is you ain't
gonna publish this masterpiece
so's I can finally get some peace?
