Melancholy Cowboy That Sam I Am. That Sam I Am. Who doesn’t like green eggs and ham? Only people who are too nervous to try it. I do not know what it is about this little boy of mine, but he sure gets the melancholy mumps on a regular basis. He is sad in this picture because I won’t let him carry a woman’s purse. Poor kid. He doesn’t know all I do for his own good. To his future wife- you’re welcome.
