Phinger nails are phunny phings
On dentists, dustmen even kings,
Women polish, paint and phile
Mechanics clean them all the while,
On phinger ends they're always there
Expecting you to give them care,
They trap the muck and dirt and grime
So you must clean them all the time,
Break them, cut them, bite them down
Catch them on your phavourite gown,
You can phile and you can pick,
You can chip and you can nick,
You can wear them to the wick,
And still they're back double quick !
To poke your nose or scratch your head
Or claw an itch until it's red,
No substitute has yet been made
Not even artiphicial aid!
Use a hammer and I bet
A phinger nail is what you get,
Japs pulled them out and they were right
They're better oph out of sight !
