When poor Bets was sick in her bed,
Nose running and poor aching head...
And an annoying cough,
Which she couldn't shake off,
How she wished she was healthy instead.

Brilliant limerick all round! :lol:
'Oh voice of Spring of Youth
hearts mad delight,
Sing on, sing on, and when the sun is gone
I'll warm me with your echoes
through the night.'

(E. Blyton, Sunday Times, 1951)

A new one:

A precocious young lad named Dan,
'Go down to the side-shows by the river this afternoon. I'll meet you somewhere in disguise. Bet you won't know me!' wrote Fatty.

Decided to make a fruit flan.

With peaches and pears,

Decided to make a fruit flan.
With peaches and pears,
And some fruit Gummy Bears,
'Oh voice of Spring of Youth
hearts mad delight,
Sing on, sing on, and when the sun is gone
I'll warm me with your echoes
through the night.'

Plus pineapple out of a can.

There was a young girl called Jenny,
Whose virtues were varied and many.

When I was above myself, I was a curious pair.
My lower feet still trod the ground; my uppers trod the air.
I said I must come down a peg, I know not where I stand.
So, reaching up, I pulled my leg and took myself in hand.

This is a song, from a 1940's show/movie called 'Lady in the dark -


There once was a girl named Jenny,
Whose virtues were varied and many,
Excepting that she was inclined,
Always to make up her mind,
This story proves a moral,
With which you cannot quarrel,
As you will find... etc etc ;-)



Anyway - back to the limerick! -

There once was a girl named Jenny,
Whose virtues were varied and many,
'Oh voice of Spring of Youth
hearts mad delight,
Sing on, sing on, and when the sun is gone
I'll warm me with your echoes
through the night.'

Whose virtues were varied and many,
But one thing she lacked,
'Tis loving and giving that makes life worth living.

I know for a fact,
She had no money - not a penny!

There was an old man called Jack,
Who had a big mole on his back.
