      Is nothing sacred?

      My heartfelt apologies to Ted Geisel, but I couldn't help myself. (I
      blame Shane)

      THE HAMMOCK MAN

      Sam I am, I am Sam
      I am Sam, Sam I am

      That Sam-I-am!
      That Sam-I-am!
      I do not like that Sam-I-am!

      Do you like hammocks, man?

      I do not like them, Sam-I-am.
      I do not like hammocks, Sam.

      Would you like them here or there?

      I would not like them here or there.
      I would not like them anywhere.

      Would you use them in a box?
      Would you use them with a fox?

      Not in a box.
      Not with a fox.
      Not in a house.
      Not with a mouse.
      I would not use them here or there.
      I would not use them anywhere.
      I would not use hammocks, Sam.
      I do not like them, Sam-I-am.

      Would you? Could you?
      Hang from a car?
      Use them! Use them!
      Here they are.

      I would not, could not, hang from a car.

      You may like them.
      You will see.
      You may like to hang from a tree!

      I would not, could not hang from a tree.
      Not in a car! You let me be!

      A train! A train!
      A train! A train!
      Could you, would you, tie on a train?

      Not on a train! Not in a tree!
      Not in a car! Sam! Let me be!

      I would not, could not, tie in a box.
      I could not, would not, tie with a fox.

      i will not tie them here or there.
      I will not tie them anywhere.
      I do not tie hammocks, Sam.
      I do not tie them, Sam-I-am.

      Say!
      In the dark?
      Here in the dark, under a tarp!
      Would you, could you, sleep in the dark, under a tarp?

      I would not, could not,
      Sleep in the dark, under a tarp.

      Would you, could you,
      in the rain?

      Are you insane?
      I would not, could not, in the rain.
      Not in the dark under a tarp. Not on a train.
      Not in a car. Not in a tree.
      I do not like them, Sam, you see.
      Not in a house. Not in a box.
      Not with a mouse. Not with a fox.
      I will not put them here or there.
      I do not put them anywhere!

      You do not like hammocks?

      I do not like hammocks,
      Sam-I-am.

      Could you, would you with a goat?

      I would not, could not, set up with a goat!

      Would you, could you, set up on a boat?

      I could not, would not, set up on a boat.
      I will not, will not, set up with a goat.
      I will not hang them in the rain.
      I will not hang them on a train.
      Not hang in the dark! Not hang in a tree!
      Not sleep in a car! You let me be!
      I do not tie them in a box.
      I do not tie them with a fox.
      I will not use them in a house.
      I do not use them with a mouse.
      I do not like them here or there.
      I do not like them ANYWHERE

      I do not like hammocks, Sam!

      I do not like them, Sam-I-am.

      You do not like them.
      So you say.
      Try them! Try them!
      And you may.
      Try them and you may, I say.

      Sam!
      If you will let me be, I will try them.
      You will see.

      Say!
      I like hammocks!
      I do! I like them, Sam-I-am!
      And I would set up in a boat.
      And I would set up with a goat...

      And I will hang them in the rain.
      And hang in the dark. And hang on a train.
      And hang in a car. And hang in a tree.
      They are so good, so good, you see!

      So I will tie them in a box.
      And I will tie them with a fox.
      And I will tie them in a house.
      And I will tie them with a mouse.
      And I will tie them here and there.
      Say! I will tie them ANYWHERE!

      I do so like
      Hammocks, Sam!
      Thank you!
      Thank you,
      Sam-I-am!

      Now what should we eat?
