Country Verse

I said I’d never love you,

and hello, hello never.


Real Verse

I said I’d never write a novel,

only poetry.

I said I’d never wear a dress,

now just look at me.

I said I’d never curse the rain

no matter how bad the weather.

Well goodbye what I thought I knew,

and hello, hello never.

life sure gets more curious

the more I meet my nevers


Food Verse

I said I’d never eat mayonnaise

no potato chips for me.

I said I’d never eat fried food—

But deviled eggs taste fabulous,

Goodbye skinny waist and thighs

and hello, hello never.


Said I’d never write a country song

well hello, hello never.
