(Sung to the tune of Popeye the Sailor Man)

Call Balladeer's Pest-Control Inc.,
If ya find bugs in your sink,
He's got ten high-school seniors,
That are fly-swatter swingers,
No poisons to make your house stink.

That's Balladeer's Pest Control,
If ya got mice comin' outta their holes,
He's got ten mangy cats
That will eat up the rats,
No unpleasant smells to your nose.

Call Balladeer's Pest Killin' Crew,
He gets fleas off of animals too,
He picks them off with his teeth,
And he's an expert with sheep,
He'll take all the crabs off your ewes.

ROFLMAO!!!! I love the poem... but I have my reservations about calling Balladeer and his crews for help... the cure might be worse than the problem! LOL

Three guesses what I'll be singing all day long! LOL.

And his prices are reasonable indeed,
He'll talk "turkey" for chicken feed,
A dollar a flea,
For sheep it's all free,
Cuz a little bit of "scratch" is all ya need!

Toerag: Ya mean you're going to let Balladeer use this fine commercial? For free??? How generous of you! I'm sure his business will skyrocket immediately... you should at least ask for free fruit fly control! LOL

Is nothing sacred to you?
You would belittle a man and his livlihood for the sake of a few laughs? True, I'm no academic who gets to sit in his university on the computer all day, making up silly rhymes but I have my pride too, you know, and there is something I would like to ask you....can I use that jingle? ROFLMAO! This was a good one, ya smart-aleck punk!

Suthern, you should have me over for a "service" call. I'd have that BUZZ out of your ears in no time!
