Zeppo Lamenting

Emily and Sally, Kathy and Loureen,       [Apsley ]

Baked a dingo's foetus in a cracked tureen       [Roland ]

Wasn't that a dainty dish to set before a Queen?       [(trad-ish) ]

Harpo and Groucho, Zeppo and Larry       [F ]

Which of these men ought Marg'ret to marry?       [Apsley ]

At her age, she should choose quite soon, she hasn't time to tarry       [Beefy ]

Rudolph and Rudolf, Erik and Gill       [Apsley ]

Dished out the grub and set to with a will       [Beefy ]

Could they all have eaten more? No, they'd had their fill       [F ]

William, Hillary, Monica, Gen       [Beefy ]

And the Starr of the show, that guy named Ken       [F ]

Who regularly demands the time to seek the Buddhists' zen       [Apsley ]

Envoi       [Roland ]

Be careful when you choose a name       [Beefy ]

Not every one will lead to fame       [Apsley ]
