This is the tenth verse of The Ballad of May West.
When ‘tween two evils one must choose
It’s good to pros and cons peruse
And pick the one you haven’t tried before.
So many men … so little time
To err, though human, feels divine
She was Snow White, but drifted, to be sure.
This is the ninth verse of The Ballad of May West.
She asked a cop if he’d divulge
The nature of a clothing bulge
Was that a gun, she wondered, that he had?
A weapon not so well concealed
Or when truth was at last revealed
Would it show that to see her he was glad?
This is the eighth verse of The Ballad of May West.
She said when she was being chummy
With comic, Edgar Bergan’s, dummy,
Charlie is “all wood and a yard long.”
She starred in films with Carey Grant
A feat that made her rivals pant
And wowed the crowds with many a risqué song.
This is the seventh verse of The Ballad of May West.
Now Mae believed in censorship
She made a fortune out of it
Although sometimes it put her in a bind.
She spoofed the fine signature tune
That Sophie Tucker used to croon
When she said, “A hard man is good to find.”
