I am so happy and so glad
I do not now feel blue and bad
I laugh and talk and take my ease -
I come and go just ss I please
I tell you what I sold my home
When I listed it with White St Stone.
I was feeling very blue and sad
My wife she made me almost mad
She did not want on the farm to stay
She wanted to sell it end move away
So I listed it for more than a year
And still I found myself right here.
The agents they took my place in hand
They were so sure they could sell the land
I sometimes think tbey did not try
For they never brought a man to buy.
They gave a wink with a knowing smile .
And 'rled to fool me all the while.
With that knowing smile and wink
They could not fool me don't you think
I saw thev would not sell my home
So I listed it with White & Stone
You bet I found them Just and true
They will do your work all right for you.
They will always help-if they can
They deal with you as man with man.
They are always ready with good advice
And they are not afraid to advertise
So If you would buy or sell a home
Just "have a talk with White & Stone.
