The Baker family, down the street

Absolutely could not be beat

In any sport or academic,

Naught for them was problematic;

The children won all of the races

and spelling bees were just some paces,

For greater grandioser things

Like degrees and wedding rings.

Thirteen children, none were twins,

Good Catholic kids all free from sin,

Filled the town with kith and cousin,

All were known as Baker’s Dozen,

Doctors, lawyers, teachers, too,

stuck together just like glue,

Family reunions although glowing

Filled the town to overflowing,

Good for business, all those cousins,

Started out with Baker’s Dozen.
