APED: "wimpy"

Come up to the house for a duck dinner
you bring the ducks -- by which I mean
I am at low water
but I will gladly pay you Tuesday
for a hamburger today
or if you were to buy me a hamburger, sir,
I would see that you are favored
in your fight with the sailor
which I shall referee
and oh dear, Roughhouse has left the till open --
yes, of course, Popeye, I'll give it back
I say, Roughhouse,
here is that sixty cents I owe you
