(A Little Song Written by Don Dickerman for 
           David's Birthday Party) 
        SONG TO DAVIE PUTNAM 
Oh, his name was Davie Putnam, 
And the youngest man aboard, 
In truth we guessed they shipped him for a lark, 
Didn't need no powder monkey, 
Guests we couldn't quite afford, 
But he sailed with William Beebe on the Ark. 
Oh, we took this Davie Putnam, 
And we sailed away I say, 
To those desert islands cruel, bleak and stark 
There we captured giant lizards, 
Sharks and tortoise in the bay, 
As we sailed with William Beebe in the Ark. 
And this little Davie Putnam, 
Who was only twelve y'see, 
                     131
