Needs a volume control
Joe's tie was anything but quiet,
It was so loud it caused a riot,
When he went to the Gambling Place,
With his fiancee Mary Alice.

When they entered the noise level rose,
To decibels that would cause a bloody nose,
He wanted to show her how to roll dice,
But she just wanted shrimp fried rice.

The slot machine players protested the clamor,
Because it sounded like a jackhammer,
No one could hear the jackpot bells,
Or the beverage hostesses yells.

A bouncer tried to escort Joe out,
But Joe could not hear the bouncer shout,
So the owners blackballed Joe,
Until his installed volume control.
