The roses are doing quite well
But have the most god-awful smell.
They were grown in manure
That was ever so pure

And the stink would send you to hell!

My papa only wore long sleeve shirts

My papa only wore long-sleeve shirts
That dangled down low in the dirt.
The cuffs were all frayed
Since he fired the maid

The cuffs were all frayed
Since he fired the maid
And her feelings were ever so hurt.

He also wore bright scarlet braces

He also wore bright scarlet braces
Adorned with his enemy's faces.
His big cheesy grin,
looked just like his twin

looked just like his twin
but lacking in all social graces.

Two kestrels have made a small nest
To which they invited a guest.
When that buzzard arrived
He had to revive
The kestrels who thought it no jest.


The youngsters are ready to fly

The youngsters are ready to fly
Wings spread, they jump into the sky
A pilot who passed

but not very fast

but not very fast
decided to he'd better rise high.

A pigeon was flapping about
With a cinnamon bun in her mouth.
Some unlucky camper
Had nought in his hamper
