Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 114

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.


Yes, I remember Princess Grace—
Though I’d not heard of Monaco—
When she found Prince (oh, handsome face!)
And left her Hollywood to go

Abroad and wed her wealthy prince.
I’d loved her in High Noon, of course,
But have not thought of her much since
That Gary Cooper used his force.

And Monaco appeared, as well,
In some James Bond flick (but which one?)—
A gambling scene (a Bad Guy fell)—
Those Bond films—always lots of fun.

Well, Monaco—a tiny place—
A dot upon the coast of France.
It’s noted for its motor race—
Casinos where the wealthy dance.

Yes, Monte Carlo! Famous spot
Where gamblers gamble, lounge around
Where all the humans are, well, hot—
And Princess Grace is in the ground.
