were only two ways to stop that howl

lie has horns and climbs over fcuccs.
This goat loved the boy because he was
so kind to It. Porno boys would hit a
gnat with a crowbar If they got mad,
but Willie never even struck his goat
with a stick. If ever you get a gout
oud want him to love you, don't abuse
him. A goat has feelings as well as a
boy. Well, one day Willie and his goat
were out on the sidewalk, and along
