“Hello, I’m pleased to see you, dear;
I’m so glad you managed to be here.
“Did you come here all alone?
How are all your folks back home?
“Our aunt looks very nice, you see;
Her hair’s as pretty as can be.
“Well, lately I haven’t seen her much.
Somehow we got out of touch.
“Of course, today I had to come.
It’s good to see you and everyone.
“Too bad we can’t all get together
For some occasion that is better…
“Why are funerals the only place
We see each other face to face?”
