Pensioner Power

Standard

3 young muggers got quite a fright
when they attacked Granny Smith, one night
For this sweet old lady was no easy prey
With a Kalishnikov, she blew their kneecaps away!
And they gave her a medal
for standing up to the rabble
She still relives her finest hour
In her council flat…Pensioner Power!

When I Was Seven

Standard

When I was seven, I’d walk on top of walls
Climb steep hills, then tumble and fall
When I was seven, I’d eat sweets until I was sick
And lie on my bed reading my “Beano” comic
When I was seven, I’d ride my bike
Ride it when and where I liked
When I was seven, life was simple and clear
No worries, confusion or reason to fear…

Michael Fish

The BBC stalwart Michael Fish and his “kipper ties”
He committed the ultimate faux pas for a weatherman
and failed to predict the great storm of ’87
For which he should surely be forgiven
But not for his crimes against fashion!

The Pride of West Africa – His Name, Roger Milla

Standard

The Lions of Cameroon
Beamed into our living rooms
During the ’82 and ’90 World Cups
I loved Roger’s sensational goal celebrations
His exploits, like Oman Biyik’s, engulfed the nation
I have to say, though
not quite as brilliant as Samuel Eto’o
But what nearly every football fan wants to know:
Just how old is Roger Milla?

To see him on retro T-shirts would be nice
Or posters, a “Roaring Trade In Merchandise”
Re-inventing himself wouldn’t come at all too late
and we’d all love a signed copy of his birth certificate
Roger Milla, Roger Milla, what a man
Even more influential,than Asamoah Gyan!…

The Pride Of West Africa
His name is Roger Milla…
But exactly how old is he?
It remains a mystery.

At the Rodeo

Standard

They’d have a great time at the Rodeo
Watching the cowboy tame the bucking bronco
Drinking “Budweiser” real slow
in the scorching heat of the Rodeo.

Quite a crowd has gathered, to see how far the next cowboy can go
A trophy at stake, it mattered, the stallion the cowboy he did throw
(Straight away)
The next cowboy fared a bit better
The one after stole the show.

All the fun of the Rodeo…
