I think I'll sail off in a boat
Provided the old yacht will float
So it's sink or swim
I'm off on a whim
To visit that lovely French Cote

But we can’t all be Edward Lear

There's so much advice

My Auntie Vera always said
To go where angels fear to tread
I went, tripped and fell

My Auntie Vera always said
To go where angels fear to tread
I went, tripped and fell
I'm not a gazelle!

My Auntie Vera always said
To go where angels fear to tread
I went, tripped and fell
I'm not a gazelle!
And now there's a pain in my head 🤕

The Doc, he said, "you naughty girl"
There`s certain hair you shouldn`t curl

The Doc, he said, "you naughty girl"
There`s certain hair you shouldn`t curl
So have a warm bath

lovebeigecardigans1955 Sun 25-Oct-20 07:20:56

The Doc, he said, "you naughty girl"
There's a certain hair you shouldn't curl
So have a warm bath
And then a good laugh

The Doc, he said, "you naughty girl"
There's a certain hair you shouldn't curl
So have a warm bath
And then a good laugh
And, afterwards, give me a twirl!!

Remember, it is Sunday morn,
So we’d better stay clear of porn

Remember it’s Sunday morn
So we’d better stay clear of porn.
Visit the Church instead.

Remember it’s Sunday morn
So we’d better stay clear of porn.
Visit the Church instead
Of lazing in bed

crazyH Sun 25-Oct-20 12:24:09

Remember it’s Sunday morn
So we’d better stay clear of porn.
Visit the Church instead
Of lazing in bed
You'll be a good Christian, reborn

My winceyettes are cosy and warm
They remind me of the school dorm
