Reading Time: 3 minutes.
Tempo: 4/4, upbeat, like, you know, RAP.
This is "Uncle Miltie's" great Boy's Life Rap - He is the Commissioner of

Like eatin’, and cookin’, and hikin’ on a bike,
Adventure, hobbies, sci-fi, and sports,
People, and places, and fun of all sorts,

They’re the same ones sent in when your father was a boy!

And its contents will please each father and mother,

And it’s easy to order at charter renewal.
