Who May I Say Is Calling?

from by Mitch Friedman



Who May I Say Is Calling?

You're funny, you're dour
You're sweet and you're sour
You're grungy, you're stunning
You're stoic, you're punning

You're honest, corrupt
Relaxed yet abrupt
You're giggling, you're bawling
Who may I say is calling?

You're winsome, you're crabby
You're quiet yet gabby
You're supple, you're brittle
Sure yet noncommittal

You're secure, you're needy
You're veggie, you're meaty
You're minute, you're sprawling
Who may I say is calling?

You're someone, no one
and everyone at once
You're one of the Funts,
and I am your dunce

You're bubbly, you're bleak
Stubbly but chic
You're trusty, you're shifty
You're wasteful yet thrifty

You're wingnut, you're lib
You're blatant but glib
You're prompt yet you're stalling
Who may I say is calling?

You're subtle, you're pointed
Stiff yet double-jointed
Convenient but distant
Erratic, consistent

You're morose, you're chipper
You're devout, you're stripper
Outstanding, appalling
Who may I say is calling?
