Little strips of cloth
Hanging in a row.
Knotted at the top
Or a boring bow.

Why do men wear ties?
Ties!
Why do men wear ties?
Ties!

Stiffened collar buttoned
Tie and tails affair.
Formal attire only
Sorry tie required.

Why do men wear ties?
Ties!
Why do men wear ties?
Ties!

Dull or polka dotted
Thin or wide or droop.
Clip-on double Windsor
Stained with chicken soup.

Why do men wear ties?
Ties!
Why do men wear ties?
Ties!

Flacid silk and cotton
Flapping in the breeze.
Strangulate the fellow
Whether knit or tweed.

Why do men wear ties?
Ties!
Why do men wear ties?
Ties!
