The Lyrics

Trimming of thickets on a narrow plain
Quaint Scotch pines, a lake, a grass lane
Lowly grazin' fawns, on a rollin' lawn
My baby, just-a wove me a sweater

I don't know how much lovin' I've got to lend
Got to use tact and just maybe she'll bend
Only praise, respond, I'm a-growin' wan
My baby, just-a wove me a sweater

Well, she wove me a sweater
Said it stood to spiff the trou' that I wore
Listen sister, can't you see the yarn has attacked
Left me ailin' and-a sore
Anyway, yeah!

Gimme a tablet for this scary pain
Vein clots bind to make my gasp strained
Stony-faced, withdrawn, I'm a-goin' yond
My baby, just-a wove me a sweater

Well, she wove me a sweater
Said it stood to lift the lout she adored
Listen sister, can't you hear my wheezin', my hack
And my crazy gruntin' snore
Anyway, yeah!

Jimmy my ticker, try to spare the pain
Faint clock chimes, I wake, I lapse drained
Lonely days anon, I'm a-goin' gone
My baby, just-a wove me a sweater
My baby, just-a wove me a sweater

Wow! I would call this a Misheard Lyric parody, except for the fact that it all makes sense. Good job!

I guess it a little tight?

Sir, I do like this . . . It's a bit MalcolmEsque in its poetic run-on; but I like it! Sir, do you have an allergy to wool ? AHHHHH . . chew!
