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
