VERSE
Old King Solomon wrote a column and
A half about his thousand wives;
History put his name in the hall of fame
With all the other famous lives.
While I admire him so,
There’s one thing I’m anxious to know.
REFRAIN 1
Who was King Solomon’s favorite wife?
Gee, but she must have been a peach!
Who did he feature in his all-star cast?
Who did he always say good night to last?
Who was the pride and joy of his life
When he was full of care and strife?
He had a thousand at his beck and call--
I wonder who he beckoned most of all.
I’d give up all my dough
To spend a day or so
With Solomon’s favorite wife.
REFRAIN 2
Who was King Solomon’s favorite wife?
Gee, but she must have been a peach!
Who did he give the most of all his love?
Who was the one the rest were jealous of?
Who was the pride and joy of his life
When he was full of care and strife?
I wouldn’t give a rap to wine and dine
The other nine hundred and ninety-nine,
But I would give my legs
To have some ham and eggs
With Solomon'’ favorite wife.
