SAY! MARRIED MEN!
By Jim Manee
Say, you who are married
And do not respond,
As yet to the calling of war,
There's a bit you can do
If you're right anxious to
To help Uncle Sam make a score.
When your day's work is done,
If you shoulder no gun,
And yet are American made,
Your arms you can "harden,
If you'll work your garden;
Say, men, why not shoulder a spade?
P. S. And what ypu grow may
help hit the living cost in the slats.
