Corn On The Cob

By Bud Lemire

I love to eat corn on the cob
Even though I dribble like a slob
Running down my hands and face
I nibble the corn at my own pace

There's many ways to cook it, some don't cook it long
But the way that you do it, is right for you, not wrong
Some even add sugar, to make it sweet
I even heard milk was added to make it complete

Lots of butter and a little salt added too
As long as the corn tastes just right for you
Peel the corn and look at that ear
Feeling kind of corny and no corn is near

I had some recently, and it tasted great
When it comes to corn on the cob, three I recently ate
When the sun goes down, I eat popcorn at night
So I can be even cornier, before it is daylight

So butter up some corn on the cob
Don't worry if it dribbles and you feel like a slob
Enjoy the taste that you've come to know
Look at all those kernels so neatly in a row
