One Fish Ball

A man was walking up and down,
To find a place where he could dine in town;
A man was walking up and down,
To find a place where he could dine.

He found himself a fancy place,
And entered in with simple grace. [Repeat.]

He took his purse his pocket hence,
But all he found was fifteen cents.

He scanned the menu through and through,
To see what fifteen cents would do.

The only thing 'twould to at all,
Was buy just one fish ball.

He call the waiter down the hall,
And softly whispered, "One fish ball."

The waiter bellowed down the hall,
"This gentlemen here wants one fish ball!"

The guests, they turned both one and all
To see who'd ordered one fish ball.

The shaken man grew ill at ease,
But softly whispered, "Bread, sir, please.

The waiter bellowed down the hall,
"You get no bread with one fish ball!"

The wretched man then went outside,
A-looking for a place to hide.

There is a moral to this all:
Don't ask for bread with one fish ball.
