Ival Is My Name

By John I. Blair

I have a funny name;
My name is Ival.

You can call me John
And I will answer;

But I maintain Iím really Ival,
Thatís the truth.

Iím not the only Ival Ė
Thereís my son, my Dad;

My Grandpa had this name,
A slew of cousins,

And even quite a few
Iím not related to.

I say that itís a Scottish name,
But sooth to tell

I canít prove a thing about it
Except itís mine as well.
