Marvin Van Sloot

2 Apr

I remember what Marvin was saying

as we were just walking along

beware of the geese down by the pond

they’ll chase ya

oh, I said

You see Marvin Van Sloot wore a zoot suit

and always played the lottery

when he ought to have taken up pottery

he committed robbery

Gotta get while get can, Marvin would say

grab ahold of that loot and scoot!, he’d shout

people would stare because Marvin wore

a long heavy coat on a hot day

with a colorful tie and a watch on a long chain

and a hat with a huge brim

so his face was always in the shade

Don’t know where Marvin is today

or if he got any fast money

hope he remembered to stay away from

the crocodiles down by the river
