The Lyrics

Dough - it's paste I knead for bread
Re - Italian word for 'king'
Mea culpa - Latin guilt
Fa't - it's so embarrassing
So - an adverb meaning 'much'
LA - Louisiana mail
Tee - a shirt for golf and such
Dough - there's what I'll need for bail!

Ewe - a sheep, a female sheep
Yew - a hedge that 's evergreen
You - a name to call yourself
U - a turn to leave the scene
Hugh - an entertaining guy
Hew - a job that's carving wood
Hue - a tint to catch the eye
And that brings me back to 'Ewe'.

Ewe, yew, you, U, Hugh, hew, hue, ewe.

Dough - its paced, aye! kneed fore-bred
Re - Italian whirred forking
Mia culpa - Latin gilt
Fa't - a note 'em bare-ass sing.
'So-' it forms a couch with '-fa'
New orLe-Ans mAiL - that's LA
Tee - fore golf drive that will sail
Dough - theirs watt aisle need four bale.

Ewe, yew, you, U, Hugh, hew, hue, ewe.

Funny, especially all the variants of "you". We need more light-hearted stuff here.
