My Son's Pals

They cleaned us out of custard,
made short work of the beer.
Baa Lamb Curry went down a treat,
raise a glass and shout three cheers.
Stayed up till five next morning,
played computer games.
Loaned ten quid from my begging bowl,
but nobody was to blame.
They ate a hearty breakfast,
mustard and fries on toast.
Then one said though it’s Tuesday,
can we dine on Sunday roast?
They complained about the gravy,
said the broccoli looked like trees.
At midnight, under moon so bright,
they invited their friends to tea.

this is similaaar to the "March Of The Founding Fathers"... we used to have to march to it in orphanage. used to beat the time on our heads with sticks. i believe it was written by dulbert and sullivan on an off day.

I do hope they found their fathers as I think I know what it feels like to be a lost dad

larry, I knew this was yours as soon as I read the first two lines!  You have an excellent voice that is so unique!   You made me laugh, which is always a welcome relief here where the manure gets thick and chokey!
