Elvis, Marilyn and the Bomb

Phoned up an old buddy tonight.

He was not home
But his daughter was.

We talked about sports
And we talked about America
Since she was a recent visitor
To the country that gave us Elvis,
Marilyn and the Bomb.

She said of her American adversaries,
"They were not that good.

We kicked their fat American Asses."

I laughed. Ha ha.

Nothing beats kicking American Ass.

Her voice was sure
And I could not help thinking
Another one of my buddy's
Kids is a kid no more.
