I don't talk italian,
Swahili, French or Greek.
I can't even speak too good
The only language that i speak.

I'm told it isn't English,
As that word is understood
By folks who understand it
And speak it real real good.

It's more like my own kind
Of talk, the grammar in it's nil.
People say, "I do" "I shall."
I say "i done" I will."

They ask, "Aren't I?"  I reply
In a way that makes them faint
"I dont know if you are or arent,
But one thing's sure, I aint."

I guess I'm not to lingual.
My IQ aint very high.
My mother never read no books
To my little sis and I.

So her and me grew up real dumb.
We just wanted to have fun.
An education might be nice,
But no one gave us none.

So here I am, illiderate
In any language that i try,
With only enough english
To barely get me by.

Well, anyway, Dear Sir or Mamm.
I'm writting you to say
I'm intrested in your resent ad
And I've inclosed my resumay.

Be careful with your wit, dear friend
Or there'll be a job for you
Some enterprising lass may soon
Have you saying "I do!"
In marriage it won't matter
Your limitations are nothing to fear
Soon the only words you'll need
Are a nod and a "yes, dear!"
