most strangest thing I ever saw
came knocking one day at my door.
she said she come to sell her love
but she had none be speaking of.
I ask her Love your mother? No, she says.
I ask her Love your brother? No, she says.
I ask her Then what you got to sell to me?
says Put it that way, let you have it free.
She'll be on back here home by three
with lamb chops from the A&P.
We been happy since the time
she come to trade her love for mine.
