Synonym

Call a woman a kitten, but never a Cat;

You can call her a mouse, cannot call her a Rat;

Call a woman a chicken, but never a Hen!

Or you surely will not be her caller again.

You can call her a duck, cannot call her a Goose;

you can call her a deer, but never a Moose;

You can call her a lamb, but never a Sheep;

Economic she likes, but you can't call her Cheap.

You can say she's a vision, can't say she's a sight;

And no woman is skinny, she's slender and slight:

If she should burn you up, say she sets you afire;

And you'll always be welcome, you tricky old liar.
