Hi, it might be the heat (or insanity!) but I’m thinking seagull-sea lion-Saturday night!
Saturday Night On The Sea Front
Cyril the seagull was feeling henpecked
But that’s what happens when you fly in to a chicken coop
He would have put his glasses on when he got out of bed
So that he could see where he was going loop the loop
But he’d gone out last night on the seafront with Fred
Fred was a fellow chip eating gull, a gent and scholar
He’d drunk him under the table, and through a crisp packet
And Cyril lost his specs to the sea, “Come back!” he did holler
Looking for them Cyril and Fred made such a racket
Alas, specs are not obedient so it became time for valour
Cyril crept home to the missus, she wasn’t pleased
At the half blind gull fluttering around her tidy nest
Squawking away, his woes she did not want to ease
He assured her that he’d tried to find them, he’d done his best
Hampered by his bleary eyes. She sent him out to sleep with the bees
The morning came and there was work to do
He saw Fred on his way to the ocean, laughing hysterically
This was after he’d shocked the chickens and made them poo
Walloped his wings and bumped his head on twenty odd trees
Fred screeched “Look out to sea, mate, I’ve good news for you!”
He saw what his friend was doubled over about
A sea lion was lumbering merrily towards the shore
Wearing the glasses, unable to see through them no doubt
“You must be Cyril.” the sea lion honked, Cyril was in awe
“Your missus said to look out for you, you hungover beaky lout.”
Have a fab rest of the weekend and treat yourself to a lie in!
