Jupiter and Juno - One fine morning or so it is said | 09-Dec-09

Enquirer is looking for a poem about Jupiter and his wife Juno.  It has about 8 verses and starts something like:

"One fine morning or so it is said
Jupiter jumped right out of bed.
He looked in the glass and thought
what is the use of a beard, it's much too hot".

One of the other verses contains the lines:

"Juno protested and Jupiter swore,
If he cut off his beard she would love him no more."

my grandad was looking for this poem he says the words go ,

One fine morning or so it is said,
Jupiter jumped right out of bed,
He looked in the glass and thundered,
what is the use of a beard. It's much too hot.

( he can't remeber the next bit but then says it goes )

Juno protested and Junipter swore,
If He cut off his beard she would love him no more,

but when at last he picked up the shires,
Juno dissolved into womanly tears,
so he patted her head, and said there there,
with the kind magnanimus courtly air,
I may be a god, but im only human,
and i cant say no to a weeping woman,
and the good sirs is the tale of how,
jupitar uttered this moral vow.

he cant remeber how this ends, he first heard it in the 1940's
