Ostrich Ride and other Tales
There once was a gal named Loris,
Who had a pet ostrich named Morris;
It was rather smart,
It could pull a cart,
It pulled Loris all the way to Paris.
A man in a boat on a pond,
Fell head over heels for a blonde;
She seemed sweet and sassy,
And really quite classy,
Too late he realized he'd been conned.
I know a fine lady named Lee,
Who works most diligently;
At Canadian Tire,
Every single buyer,
Loves Lee most definitely.
She's a lovely lady the Moon,
She makes many a lover swoon;
She's faithful and true ,
Like a favourite brew,
She's a peach in December or June.
There once was a plumber named Perry,
Many thought that he was from Paree;
Though he spoke no French,
He was good with his wrench,
According to a gal called Marie.
There once was an ape named Harry,
Who was tall and dark and hairy;
But he played the piano,
With his friend Cyrano,
Together they made folks merry.
There's a lad in our gym called Kevin,
To this fellow floor hockey is heaven;
He captains our team,
With a great deal of steam,
And he scores not seven but ten times seven.
Three fellows, Wynken, Blynken, and Nod,
Went sailing to fish for some cod;
But they fell asleep,
Their boat sank in the deep,
And they woke up in the house of God.
There’s a fine lady from New York,
Who is anything but a dork;
She’s smart and she’s pretty,
She’s Lena not Betty,
And her hands have a great deal of torque.
There once was a lady called Callie,
Who lived in the valley with Nallie;
What they did down there,
Was take care of a bear,
That Callie and Nallie named Sally.
