Father Christmas; where have you gone?

Father Christmas where have you gone?

Will I never be able to tell my son

Of times gone by, of simpler days

When you reigned supreme each Christmas day?

**********

Santa came, he took your place

He does your job with greater haste

In colours chosen by market men

To sell more drinks in glass and cans

**********

The buzzwords now are buy! buy! buy!

Spend your money; don’t wonder why

Santa Claus, in red and white

Drinks coca cola; he MUST BE right.

Half a Pound of Tuppeny Rice (Whiz-Popping)

Half a pound of tuppeny rice,

Half a pound of fine treacle,

Mix it up and eat it all down,

WHIZ-POPPING begins – I’m sorry!

**********

Up and down the city road,

To buy a box of Eno’s,

That’s the way the money goes,

WHIZ-POPPING continues – I’m sorry!

 **********

 Half a pound of tuppeny rice,

Half a pound of fine treacle,

I mixed it up and ate it all down,

WHIZ-POPPING persists – I’M SORRY, I REALLY AM SORRY.

There was an Old Woman who Swallowed a Gnat!

I know an old woman, who swallowed a gnat,

What was she at, to swallow a gnat?

The silly old prat…

**********

I know an old woman, who swallowed a lizard,

That squirmed and turned and burned inside her.

She swallowed the lizard to catch the gnat,

What was she at, to swallow a gnat?

The silly old prat…

**********

I know an old woman, who swallowed a bat,

What a sap to swallow a bat.

She swallowed the bat to catch the lizard,

That squirmed and turned and burned inside her.

She swallowed the lizard to catch the gnat,

What was she at, to swallow a gnat?

The silly old prat…

**********

I know an old woman who swallowed a bed…

She’s dead!

The Queen of Hearts baked some Tarts

The Queen of Hearts,

She made some tarts,

All on a summer’s day.

 *

The Knave of Hearts;

Did he steal those tarts?

 Did he steal them right away?

 *

 The King of Hearts,

Called for the tarts,

And the knave, to beat, for sure.  

 *

But the Knave of Hearts,

 Got off scot free,

With Alice, amidst furor.

OFF WITH HER HEAD

OFF WITH HER HEAD

(From Alice in Wonderland on Top of the World)

__________________________

Off with her head, I said, OFF, OFF, OFF!

Off with her head; put it on a block!

Swing your axe high executioner; find the true mark!

I said off with her head, now; make a start!

***********

Why do you want to punish her, so?

Said the King for Alice, standing below.

She is just a child; a mere wisp of a girl,

Searching for Rabbit’s house at the Top of the World.

**********

For a moment the Queen faltered, mulling her plan,

Then she roared, Are you mouse or a man?

Alice’s head it must fall or yours will be next!

Off with her head and don’t make a mess!

**********

Standing, there, listening, Alice thought she was done,

Waiting for the chopper with its final anon.

Then down from the sky an old man appeared,

Then he whisked her away; tucked under his beard!

**********

She won’t be chopping your head, he said with a smile,

Father Christmas, to the poor, startled child.

Let us up and away and follow our snouts,

To the Top of the World and the Rabbit’s fine house.

 **********

Hissing her annoyance, the Queen voiced her thoughts,

Behead everyone, and then she went for a walk.
