Here is An Easy Trivia Question

3 Songs

The Unicorn by the Irish Rovers

There was green alligators and long-necked geese.
There was humpy bumpy camels and chimpanzees.
There was catsandratsandelephants, but sure as you're born
The loveliest of all was the Unicorn.

Cover of the Rolling Stone by Dr Hook and The Medicine Show

Boy Named Sue by Johnny Cash

What do these three very different songs have in common?

Actually this is an easy one.

UPDATE: Ok, my brother answered it. The lyrics to all three songs, each a different genre', were written by the same person: Shel Silverstein who also wrote a lot of poetry and I especially appreciate his book on giving and gratitude, The Giving Tree.

Well, it might be easy for you dear, but I am lousy... LOUSY at riddles!

The rhyme gives us our first clue
And I know the song "A Boy Named Sue"
The cover of the Rolling Stones, I haven't a clue
So I will have to wait from an answer from you. :)

DUDE!!!.... your showing your age here... They were all written by Shel Silverstien (along with Sylvia's Mother Marie Laveau and Don't Give a Dose To the One You Love Most) he also wrote kids books (A Light in the Attic, Where the Sidewalk Ends)
