..........

......................The sign says,


......................Celebrate Dave'n Bev's Weddin in June
......................Turn Here for a BIG Free Balloon!


..................Lookin' at my watch it was half past noon . . .
......................well maybe it'll be a fine afternoon.

......................So I turns left down Parker Street,
......................hoofin the road with my man-sized feet -
......................Yeah, the day was sweet as the tree birds tweet
......................and I steadied myself with a stiletto beat.

......................I see the colors 'fore I see the crowd,
......................then Bevie, she cut through the multi-hued cloud
......................and just threw back the gates and in me allow,
......................so I Cheshire grin and in through plough.

......................There is food treats of various kinds
......................so I upload a plateful of all the fine finds
......................and eat till I 'spose I'll burst and be blind.
......................Boy, my belly's in a troublesome bind!

......................Then Dave, he asks if I'll blow up balloons
......................while he strums his knees with some soulful spoons.
......................So we WOWed the crowd with an unusual tune -
......................he slappin and me my jaws workin a swoon.

......................Welp, I fell right back in a vat of ice cubes
......................but woke in an instant a silly boob
......................with a balloon on my head like a vacuum tube
......................while Dave, he crooned, "Scooby DOO!"

......................Man . . . I turned red and I turn green
......................and maybe a little of it all in between
......................and I figured it's time to s p l i t this scene
......................'fore my mood turns mean.

......................But Bev, she steps up and saves the day.
......................She hands me a wedding balloon bouquet
......................with a sign slapped on, here's what it say:
......................Congratulations, Honorary Mr. Bridesmaid!

......................The rest was a blur as I stand for the vows
......................and then them two became espoused,
......................then turn around to the cheering crowd
......................and take them together a bow.

......................About now, I decide I better just fade
......................sos them weddin pictures I won't invade.
......................Got balloons to prove it, this masquerade . . .
......................today, I was selected Honorary Mr. Bridesmaid.
