"Old Neckties"

The Lyrics

Stuffed in a dresser, wrinkled there,
Hung on a closet door
Awful, we treat that scarf of wear
Once, a shirt's companion,
Not so much anymore..
Striped, or solid blues, and whites,
Flowery, some were checked
Kids use 'em now for tails on kites
Like sand in a canyon
They get no respect..

Ties did their duty well,
Pleased every wife and gal,
Weddings and fun'rals, church, or formal bound
Now is a time to show
We care, but let 'em go,
Our old ties deserve a burial ground

No one could ever tie them knots
Always a losin' aim
Kept us uncomfy like Don Knotts
Lately, guys abandon
That crazy hangman's game
Wearin' a novelty was fun
Christmas tree, blink lights, flame
Or a nude bathin' in the sun
With brown suit, a tan one
Ties have had their fame..

Honor 'em on a ship
Bury at sea, last trip
Blast 'em in space or place in a special mound
Make a memorial
Plaque a pictorial,
Our old ties deserve a burial ground

Old neckties should have a burial ground

Many have wondered why a sane man would put a noose around his neck every day before going to work or going out. Glad I left the necktie-squad a long time ago... and you have a great niche with old cowboy songs and themes. 555 knots.

btw, did you know that cops in uniform wear clip-on "neckties", so that if someone grabs it, it just comes off? Pretty much a necessity.
