Speaking of maple syrup
[Return to Topics]

Recent posts regarding maple syrup have put the words "maple syruple" running thru my mind. I know they came from a Roger Miller tune and he just kinda threw them in to rhyme with the proceding line. That's what he said on the Johny Carson show anyway. For the life of me I can't remember any of the other words or the name of the song. Just one of those stupid little things that I'll worry about until I remember or one of you kind folks will remind me. Please !!

"Roses are Red
Violets are Purple
Sugar is sweet and
so's Maple Surple
Dang Me, Dang Me
They ought'a take
Rope and Hang me
High from the highest tree
Woman, don't you wait for me."
