Hey there pretty lady

Hey there pretty ladies
*Carrying your cases
Standing on the stairs
With smiles on your faces

Hey there pretty lady
Standing on the stage
*Illuminating letters
It's hard to guess your age

Hey there pretty lady
With a husband who is rich
He wanted someone younger
Many wives he had to ditch

Hey there pretty lady
How lucky that you are
No longer waiting tables
You've become a movie star

Hey there pretty lady
With a crown upon your head
Did you ask one of the judges
To go with you to bed

Hey there pretty ladies
Is it talent that you've got
The others didn’t make it
As attractive were they not

A school for fish

A school of fish
Swimming around
Under the sea
They can be found

No paper and pencils
They’ll look for food
No swim suits required
They all swim nude

No homework or tests
For this school of fish
I’d go to their school
If I had my wish

Wait staff

They'll order their drinks
The specials today
I have to recite them
By heart each day

Three or four tables
And oftentimes more
Whoever I’m serving
I mustn't ignore

I have to be friendly
I lift heavy trays
It’s part of my job
I won’t get a raise

When taking their orders
I do so with ease
A difficult person
I’ll try hard to please

Their meat is too raw
Their soup isn’t hot
I don’t get upset
It happens a lot

More napkins they need
Their drinks I'll refill
I need to wipe up
Whatever they spill

Their table is cleared
And some want coffee
The tray of desserts
They all want to see

My table is leaving
Their bill has been paid
I’m looking to see
How much I made

In fancier restaurants
The tips will be higher
We're all working hard
And would like to retire

Huntwick - Our Retreat

Rockfish, Carrabba’s
And Taipei
As you leave Huntwick
They’re not far away

Serves you Fajitas
Even the Outback
Has Margaritas

La Madeline
Has pastry to buy
Has great pizza pie

Grab a sandwich
At Jason’s Deli
Or put a Subway
In your belly

Early morning
Or late at night
Pancakes at I-Hop
Are quite a delight

Sample the flavors
At Ben and Jerry’s
Cold Stone gives you
Ice cream with cherries

Living in Huntwick
Is our retreat
With great food to eat
Just down the street

As of this year 2008, I've lived in Huntiwck for 20 years.
It's a beautiful subdivision in northwest Houston that's
situated off a major road, FM 1960, however, once you
enter Huntwick, you leave all that behind. Although
Huntwick is a quiet and peaceful neighborhood, there's
many restaurants and great shopping right outside the subdivision.

Old motor home

Old motor home
By the roadside
You carried a family
And did so with pride

Crossing the country
On many vacations
National parks
Met their expectations

Surrounded by mountains
Or by the seashore
Wherever they stayed
Was never a bore

Family vacations
Soon came to an end
Summers with friends
Their kids rather spend

Old motor home
With a roof that leaks
And on the road
Everything squeaks

You’re falling apart
You’ve gotten old
They've cast you aside
You couldn’t be sold

Old motor home
On the side of the road
You'll no longer carry
A heavy load

Why go to the beach

Why go to the beach
To get sunburn
Why won't we learn
To put on lotion
While at the ocean
Swim suits reveal
Their sex appeal
The blowing sand
Is out of hand
Bugs will bite
Birds will fight
For our food
Oh how rude
Waves are rough
We’ve had enough
Collect some shells
The dead fish smells
Shake out your towel
We're leaving now
But we’ll return
When we yearn
For the beach

By, Randee Saber 5/9/08

Hello, who's there

Ring, ring, ring
I’ll say hello
Is it someone
Who I know

Friends they’re not
And yet they call
Speaking fast
They never stall

Want your vote
So they're calling
To promote

No one dials
All these numbers
In their files

Who's that speaking
On the phone
Sounds to me
Just like a clone

Answer questions
You must do
Then she'll get
Some help for you

It's annoying
You may swear
You may cry
But she won't care

Slam the phone
You can't offend
Auto callers
At their end

Hot air balloon

Up, up and away
In a beautiful balloon
I’d like to go
Perhaps real soon

High off the ground
It’s hard to steer
I must be brave
And show no fear

As I look down
Everything’s small
I love it up here
I’m having a ball

I brought a bottle
Of good champagne
Wherever we land
No one will complain

1,000 Islands

A thousand islands
Or maybe more
The only home
Not near a store

No folks next door
Making noise
No little girls
Or little boys

The family home
Was handed down
The older ones
Are not around

Life on this island
Is quite remote
But we can travel
With our boat

Not asked to dance

I went with my friend
To a honky-tonk dance
We planned a night out
Not seeking romance

I’m average looking
My friend is striking
I try to be funny
She’s more to their liking

He asked her to dance
He didn’t ask me
Dancing’s so unfair
Don’t you agree

My friend left with her partner
It wasn’t in the plan
Because he was a cowboy
He had to be her man

I didn’t leave the dance hall
I thought I had a chance
Now that I was all alone
I might get asked to dance

As I got up to change my seat
While sipping on my drink
I saw a very handsome man
Who just gave me a wink

A lady quickly sat by him
Perhaps she was his friend
Searching for another man
I decided it would end

Women dance together here
And one of them asked me
Now dancing can be fair
Don’t you agree

Tails and Tales

Pony tails
In your hair
Pig tails means
Two are there

Heads or tails
Did you choose
Toss the coin
One will lose

Fairy tales
Aren’t true
Stories that are
Read to you

Tall tales often
Tell a lie
Tattle tales
Can make you cry

By, Randee Saber 5/8/08

Follow these instructions

Give me instructions
That I can read
Don’t give me more
Than I really need

Most of the time
They come in a book
I’m overwhelmed
I won’t even look

Simple instructions
Like baking a cake
In three easy steps
I’m able to make

Give me directions
Without saying west
The stores nearby
For me works best

Easy instructions
That’s what I say
The bottle states
Take twice a day

But don't forget those

Let’s revere those
For flames they battle
But don’t forget those
Who butcher our cattle

Adore the performers
In jeans or a suit
But don’t forget those
Who pick our fruit

Admire your doctor
And also his nurse
But don’t forget those
Whose illness is worse

Appreciate those
Who've chosen to fight
But don’t forget those
Who can’t see the light

Robbers and killers
Will have to serve time
But don't forget those
Who try to fight crime

Gaze at those buildings
Majestic and tall
But don’t forget those
Who built them all

16 Kids

Why would you have 16 kids
While someone hasn’t any
How do you keep up with them
I think it’s way too many

You had to choose a lot of names
Too many to remember
You've always gotten pregnant
In September and December

You really lead a busy life
There’s laundry everyday
Never eating fast food meals
At home you have to stay

Endless diapers you have changed
How many have you bought
No matter what their ages are
At home is where they’re taught

When do all the children bathe
Are they assigned a day
If they have to brush their teeth
Is there a long delay

No one has a single room
Too many have to share
The women wear long dresses
And they always braid their hair

The children can't all go for rides
There’s no room in the car
Once a week they walk to church
Because it’s not too far

This family is a big expense
A millionaire you're not
Food and clothing costs are high
No savings have you got

Yet all the children that you have
Are partially related
They live with several women
Who their father went and dated

Yes, 16 kids this father has
The moms have three or more
And when another wife arrives
There will be many more

April 7, 2008, 4:35PM400 children in custody in polygamist compound raid
By JANET ELLIOTT and JOHN MacCORMACKSAN ANGELO — The state has taken legal, temporary custody of 401 children from a polygamist compound in nearby Schleicher County, a child welfare official said today, citing allegations of abuse and that the children were at risk of harm. Officials still haven't found the 16-year-old girl whose abuse complaint triggered the massive raid. A prosecutor said Sunday she was concerned for the safety of the girl, who first called a week ago seeking help. The raid came more than four years after members of the church, long based on the Arizona-Utah border, began arriving at this rural agricultural community. While mainstream Mormons disavowed polygamy more than a century ago, the sect, led by the now imprisoned Warren Jeffs, believes in plural, arranged marriages that often involve teenage girls and older men.

You'll get a second chance

You don’t always get
A second chance
But this is a different

You’ll start out with
A practice set
You’ll need to get

This starter set
I’ll make a bet
You won’t take care
You will forget

Then one by one
They’ll all fall out
But they’ll return
Without a doubt

Beneath your head
You place a tooth
A fairy comes
And that's the truth

When you wake up
You're tooth is gone
She left you money
Way before dawn

So when you get
Your brand new set
Go brush your teeth
And don’t forget
