L   Them Lunch Toters
How about Them Lunch Toters,
Ain't they a bunch?
Goin' off to work,
A-totin' they lunch.
Totin' them vittles,
Totin' that chow,
Eatin' it later,
Totin' it now.
Look at Them Lunch Toters,
Ain't they funny?
Some use a paper sack,
Some use a gunny.
Them food-frugal Lunch Toters,
Ain't they wise?
Totin' they lunch,
Made by they wives.
How to be a Lunch Toter?
Iffa may emote it.
Gitchy wife to fixit,
Go to work and tote it!
