Light me a chulha For my handsome dulha; I made him hot chai But he prefers it coolah.
Every so often I take off my glasses And reach for a scrap that is clean, I polish one lens, and then do the other, And wonder how dirty they’ve been.

Respectable Gus Nibble Gnawsom Apparels in manner quite awesome; His trousers of cotton are properly starched With shirt neatly pressed, and epaulettes arched, And tan leather boots whose ebony laces Would help Gnawsom get into elegant places; His coat lined with taffeta, cuff links of bronze Do help him to forge the most friendly of bonds; Apparel that brightens the bearing of Gus, There never was more handsome a gentlemouse. Note: It would be most gnawsome to pronounce it gentle-mus, evidenced by the last couplet.
