Something Missing by Shel Silverstein
I remember I put on my socks,
I remember I put on my shoes.
I remember I put on my tie
That was painted
In beautiful purples and blues.
I remember I put on my coat,
To look perfectly grand at the dance,
Yet I feel there is something
I may have forgot–
What is it? What is it?

Candy the yams and spice the hams,
And though her daddy would scream and shout,
