There is a young boy who loves a shower
He stands there for over an hour
His family all shout
Please now get out
But the boy knows he has all the power!
There was a young girl who loved to twirl
She’d spin round and round in a whirl
She’d keep ever so busy
Getting frightfully dizzy
And everyone knew her as Abi-girl
There was an old lady from Bow
Whose Mum found her talent to sew
She made lots of clothes
For heads, knees and toes
And that’s how she made all her dough!
There was a young man who studied biology
All the bugs and the germs: bacteriology
It all sounds so clever
That he swore he’d never
Have anything to do with astrology!
There was an old man with a beard
Who barbecued fish till just seared
He’d pour everyone wine
Which they liked just fine
And when it was over they cheered!
There was a man named Jean-Pierre
Who sang and danced like Fred Astaire
He loved Jammy Dodgers
Looked for his Ginger Rogers
But knew to his wife there’s no compare!
Josie's sister-in law
There was a young woman from America
Whose name wasn’t Jenny or Erica
She travelled the world
With her hair all curled
And always went back to America!
There was an old woman from Dublin
Whose knees and hips were ever so troublin’
Given half a chance
She so liked a dance
That happy old woman from Dublin!
