Finally! A girl who can sing-

More than just Ring-a-ding-ding,

And doesn't need to flash her bling bling

To prove she really has zing!

Quite simple t'is 'Mavis Staples-

Aretha', quoth lord of the riddles

I swore, Janis Joplin

But what awful spellin'!

Joss Stone's the name on the labels.

And a limerick...

There once was young girl called Joss,

Her voice, well my friends, it's the boss,

She sings so damn well -

A melodious swell.

Her CD, to my life, would add gloss
