squirrel<br /> Well, I stuffed him down in an old shoe box, 'n punched a couple 'uh holes in the top<br /> And when Sunday came I snuck him into Church<br /> I's a'sittin' way back in the very last pew showin' him to my good buddy Hugh<br /> When that squirrel got loose and went totally berserk<br /> Well, what happened next is hard to tell<br /> Some thought it was heaven others thought it was hell<br /> But the fact that sump'n was among us was plain to see<br /> As the choir sang "<em>I Surrender All</em>",<br /> the squirrel ran up Harv Newman's coveralls 'n<br /> Harv leaped to his feet
