No one knows quite why,
But we are very shy.
You can't touch our crowns,
So far from the ground.

It might have been because,
Of all the bump and grind.
But Ng showed that was false,
When given enough time.

Do you know what I speak of?
I don't think you do.
It will be a long weekend,
So best of luck to you.

It might have been because, Of all the bump and grind.

Growing up with neighbors so close has its share of bumping and grinding. ;-)

But Ng showed that was false, When given enough time.

Scientist/Researcher F.P. Ng showed the theory was incorrect.
