FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 08/11/19:

A man named Benny met a genie who granted him three wishes. Benny wished for a fine house, a beautiful wife, and a million dollars.

The genie granted his wishes, but warned him that must never shave his beard, or he would be turned into an urn.

Benny enjoyed his life for many years, but his lovely wife didn't like his beard and asked him to shave it off.

Though afraid of the genie's prophesy, Benny shaved his beard, and was immediately turned into an urn.

THE MORAL: A BENNY SHAVED IS A BENNY URNED!

(The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes


Written and Recorded by
Elvis Costello (b. 25 Aug 1954), 1977
 

Oh I used to be disgusted
and now I try to be amused.
But since their wings have got rusted,
you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes.
But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain,
that's when I knew that I could not refuse.
And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

I was watching while you're dancing away.
Our love got fractured in the echo and sway.
How come everybody wants to be your friend?
You know that it still hurts me just to say it.

Oh, I know that she's disgusted (oh why's that)
Cause she's feeling so abused. (oh that's too bad)
She gets tired of the lust, (oh I'm so sad)
but it's so hard to refuse.
How can you say that I'm too old,
when the angels have stolen my red shoes.

Oh, I said "I'm so happy, I could die."
She said "Drop dead," then left with another guy.
That's what you get if you go chasing after vengeance.
Ever since you got me punctured this has been my sentence.
Oh I used to be disgusted
and now I try to be amused.
But since their wings have got rusted,
you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes.
Red shoes, the angels wanna wear my red shoes.
