When A Lazy Young Author Called Gwen

When a lazy young author called Gwen
Sat on a very sharp pen,
She said, with a squeal
“I really do feel
That I ought to start writing again!”.

Just Who?

Just who
Should I return that high-heel
Shoe
To?

I feel
That it ought to be
Leigh
Or perhaps Sue.
Oh to
Who
Should I return that shoe?

Lou
Swears
That it isn’t her’s.
Then she swears some more!

Oh how I do a mystery adore!
Just who
Should I return that shoe
To?
Do tell me. Please do.

There Was A Young Lady Called Bland

There was a young lady called Bland
Who asked for a one-night stand.
I said “that is all right.
You can stand there all night,
But she didn’t understand …!

There Was A Young Lady Called White

There was a young lady called White
Who died one bleak midnight.
When she entered my room
In the depths of the gloom
I received a terrible fright!

There was a young lady called White
Who died one bleak midnight.
When she entered my room
In the depths of the gloom
I said”please, turn on the light!”.

There was a young lady called White
Who died one bleak midnight.
When she entered my room
In the December gloom
I said “is that you, Miss White?”

There was a young lady called White
Who died one bleak midnight.
My good friend Jane
Does maintain
That she haunts her house at night!

There was a young lady called White
Who died one bleak midnight.
The drink making me brave
I slept on her grave
But I didn’t see Miss White!

I Know A Petite Blonde

I know a petite blonde
Of whom I’m rather fond.
Being in search of romance
I asked her to dance
And we waltzed in her garden pond …

I know a petite blond
Of whom I’m rather fond.
Being in search of romance
I asked her to dance
But she pushed me into the pond!
