I was just sendin' up a prayer of thanks.
That you didn't go robbing no banks,
nor was sent off a soldier either,

That you didnt go robbing no banks....(????)
Or that maybe, that harmonica is broke,
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

I'll go with the first one, coz she got my drift with the "robbing banks" line .. :P

'Cause without you, into death I'll slither..
I'd be down, in the lowest of all ranks.


Yikes!  That was one wierd limerick!  ;D
Time for another (easier) one ..

His dreams grew worse with every night,
Wishin' he had Jack's ass to bite  ;)
Will you stop playing with that radio of yours, I'm trying to get to sleep!

Wishin' he had Jack's ass to bite.
Instead, he was fraught with worry and fear

Instead, he was frought, with worry and fear,
That someone might see, or someone would hear,

Something special, something wasn't the same,
