I Love Mah Jongg
by Pam Felton
Mah Jongg, Mah Jongg, that's my game
No two hands are ever the same!
Will it be Craks, Bams, or Dots?
I'll not tell you what I've got.
What hand will I play?
It's really hard to say.
The Odds? The Evens? The Winds or the Date?
Three six nine or two four six eight?
Maybe a Quint. . . I'll not give you a hint.
Time for the Charleston. . . what it's not a dance?
I've got my hand -- I'll take a chance!!!
Now it's time to pass . . .remember don't be an ass!
Don't give two of a kind, have you lost your mind?
East and West . . .not the best
Don't pass a double, that can be trouble
What about this soap . . don't be a dope!
The passing is over, time to pick and throw
will I get a Joker . . .you never know?
What are the others doing? I must be attentive.
What about my hand . . .I'd better be inventive.
Everyone else has tiles on their wall.
I'm the one having nothing to call.
Oh wait -- that's a tile I need
I call it with great speed.
Only one more I say to myself
Then it comes out and MAH JONGG I shout!!!
I LOVE MAH JONGG!
