Early to Bed

For the past few mornings, Husband and I have been playing a rhyme game before we get out of bed. We've been changing the last line of the old Ben Franklyn maxim "Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise."

Here are a few that we came up with. Can you think of any more?

Early to bed and early to rise,
Sounds kind of nice
I might give it a try.

Early to bed and early to rise,
doesn't give you the right
to pinch my thighs.

Early to bed and early to rise,
makes
me want
to eat
French fries.

Early to bed and early to rise,
under the sheets
you will find
a surprise.

Early to bed and early to rise,
whatever you say
as long as I'm with (pointing to bedfellows)
youse guys

"Early to bed and early to rise"
is a worse ad for Delta than
"Fly the friendly skies"

Early to bed, early to rise,
Get the f#*@ out of bed
Before somebody dies

Early to bed, early to rise
Get your rear up
And make some mince pies

Early to bed, early to rise
Moe pooped on the floor-
It's attracting flies

If I didn't know Moe was a dog, I'd be disturbed.

Fun fact: this statement was on my dry-erase board in my bedroom in grade school. And I put it there.

BF is my BFF.

Don't take advice from bald-headed guys

Spectacles, notebook and coats colored rye...
