Lay a subway, to be near Join the river banks, will you? And come here without fear For some wine and barbecue. You an air guitar can bear The picnic to go with bangs, But to keep the playing fair Don’t forget to blunt your fangs. You should grasp: all ways you’re walking Always will conduct to Rome, After that we'll have a talking, - On perceiving let you come. Cast the knife and do not bear Any grunge to anyone, Put at least a stanchion where River crossings should be done.         To a sawing or haymaking You should set without delay! - Or about the time mistaken Disappointed you may stay. You’d be totally bewildered When you get out of your bed: All the bridges have been built and Nothing there can be made. So, - set up, set up your own Way between the river banks, But remember to blunt down All your long and pointed fangs.
