The next time you are walking in the city and you see a genie in a bottle, run the other way.
This genie is nothing but a fake, looking for money, so he doesn’t have to go to work everyday. If you fall for it, make sure you give him a big bill, just in case it is the one time it’s a real genie!

I woke up this fine morning
thinking it was spring I thought I heard you calling the phone, I heard it ring.
You only call on Sunday
or maybe not at all I hate to think I missed you it’s only that one call.
So now I sit here thinking
of what to say to you the next time that you call me I think I’ll have the flu.
Don’t call me on a Monday
I’ve got my chores to keep Don’t call me on a Tuesday my answer machine will beep.
Don’t call me on a Wednesday
I’d hate to miss you then Don’t call me on a Thursday I’ll not remember when.
So if you call on Friday
I’ll wait right by the phone To answer all your questions now that I am alone.
Its not that I meant to take it
Its not that I thought you’d care But when you left the house today I saw it sitting there.
I thought it tasted funny
I thought it was a fake It looked just like a muffin or someone’s birthday cake.
I guess that’s what I’ve got
coming to me now. I should have left the pie alone and left it with that cow.
