Are we happy this fine September morning?
In the mood to support a worthy cause?
No, I'm not talking about your favorite local college football team.
Don't let the UH victory over Oklahoma over the Labor Day weekend go to your head...Lamar could kick the Cougars over-confident asses next week and then what do you think will happen to that high spot in the new polls?
No, I'm talking about the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
I'm writing, this morning, because I want to encourage you to help me play with....
My Ding a Ling (With humble apologies to the great Chuck Berry!)
When I went to work at Wal-Mart one late Summer day
My CSM brought me something with which to play
Black, with a white handle, it was a cute little thing
I call it my ding a ling a ling
Parents came shopping for school
Buying supplies to help Junior learn and not grow into a fool
When they paid and donated a dollar, making my register ring,
I'd grab and wiggle my ding a ling
Then a love struck boy came looking for the perfect jewel
But he was undecided so bought a garden tool
When he paid and donated five dollars my register would ring
And I began swinging my ding a ling
Once things were slow as I waited for y'all
Climbing a ladder, stocking a shelf, I slipped and had a terrible fall
I fell against the counter and my head did ring
but at least I didn't damage my ding a ling
I remember a woman who came to my store
Bought lots of things to clean the kitchen floor
She donated ten dollars and I thought it was such a wonderful thing
That I happily wagged my ding a ling
A man came to get a license to fish in the Bayou
Catching his own dinner was what he wanted to do
Buying a rod & reel he donated fifty dollars when he paid for these things
So, with both hands, I enthusiastically waved my ding a ling
A young girl with long flowing hair
Strutting her stuff so big and bold
Wanted some beer, but I told her "you're not that old"
Such vile words you wouldn't believe can come from such a sweet young thing
Since she didn't donate I sadly couldn't shake my ding a ling
This here song I hope it makes you glad
Supporting a cause that I think is rad
Shopping at Wal-Mart please consider donating when you buy something
So you can tell your friends you saw me ringing my ding a ling
My ding a ling
My ding a ling
You saw me ringing my ding a ling
Oh my ding a ling!
My ding a ling!
I love ringing my ding a ling...!!!
