(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original vintage Tichnor Quality View postcard from the 1940s.

Don Gorez Goz, in the good ship Gree, 
Came from Spain across the sea, 
And a terribly mean old man was he.
A cake of soap and a yard of braid
Was every cent that Gorez paid
For a perfectly beautiful Indian maid.
And the braid was tarnished as it could be,
Which the Indian maiden could plainly see.
She turned and fled, and grim as death,
Gorez followed, 'till out of breath.
The damsel was forced to climb a tree,
And Gorez followed-- but oh, dear me!
The branches tangled up in his beard
And held so tightly, it appeared
He'd have to remain indefinitely!
Old Gorez Goz of the good ship Gree.
All but his beard has faded away,
But there it hangs to this very day,
A terrible warning to all who hope
To win a maid with a cake of soap
And a yard of braid that she can see
Isn't as good as it used to be."

The postcard is unused and is in VERY GOOD condition, light wear at the edges, blunted corner tips.
