The wondrous joys
Of online competitions
Go give it a go

To live and to love
There is no choice between them
Love makes life worth it

Now coming home late
Not bothered to cook dinner
The chipper’s tempting

Doing chemistry
Atoms, molecules, and stuff
Hard on the old head

Students listening
Bravely they try to get it
Before their brains melt

Non-English speakers
With heavy Irish accents

Saw Avenue Q
Kind of like Sesame Street
Made by Howard Stern

I can’t continue
Far too much sausage for me
A footlong hot dog

Heaven in a cup
A most wondrous confection
The Reece’s milkshake

You and I: a paradelle

You look at me and smile
You look at me and smile
A toothy cheesy grin
A toothy cheesy grin
Look at a toothy cheesy smile
Me and you grin

I bare my soul
I bare my soul
You open up your heart
You open up your heart
I open up my heart
You bare your soul

Want you in my arms
Want you in my arms
Hold with gentle touch
Hold with gentle touch
Hold in gentle arms
Want you with my touch

You look at me
I want your smile
A cheesy toothy grin
You bare my heart and soul
Open with gentle touch
Hold you in my arms

(Damn you Polly! Damn you!)
