My ears have quite a system here,
where each one helps the other,
and if the first one missed a sound,
he’ll just go ask his brother.
But in between the two of them’s
a wild and wooly brain,
and some things that get sent in there
just don’t come out again.
So for those most important sounds,
like rules spoke by your mother,
they skip the middle, go right around,
in one and out the other.
