Tim had no money, for which to loose, he spent it all on chicks and booze.
Terrified, Tim went to Sue. To borrow money to give to Lou.
 
But True Blue Sue, told Bucktooth Tim "Sorry pal, but that's a sin!"
"I will not give you gambling money."
"But let's go swimming, cuz it's sunny!"

So Bucktooth Tim, from Timbuktu,
Took two bucks, from True Blue Sue!
 
True Blue Sue, told Bucktooth Tim
"She would call, on Chuck and Jim!"

Chuck and Jim grabbed Bucktooth Tim.
Hit him in, the teeth and chin.
 
Knocked a tooth, out of his grin.
In his blood, they made him swim.

Bopped and bruised, beat and bent, to his home, off Tim went.
Bucktooth Tim, while spitting blood, called his brother, Big Bad Bud.
 
Big Bad Bud, said "No, No, No!" "No one hurts, my little Bro!"
"Let us get, that Chuck and Jim, that messed you up, Bucktooth Tim!"
 
Bucktooth Tim said "Rightie-Roo!"
"Let's not forget, True Blue Sue!"

Out the door they soon flew, but then they saw Bookie Lou.
 
Said Bookie Lou, with face all red "Lucky you!" "You made the spread!"
 
Handed Tim, a load of loot! Tim said to Bud "Ain't that a hoot?"

Big Bad Bud said "What a surprise!" "But I still want, to hurt those guys!"
 
Then without a thought, they had begun to beat them up, one by one.

And in the end, with a grin,
with some blood, still on his chin,
 
 
Big Bad Bud, and Bucktooth Tim,
went to the lake, and had a swim.
