Priory Park Friends Group Help
I've joined up with PPFG
I thought i'd just be there for tea
But no some woodchip needed spreading
Up the path where folks is treading.
The green flag's what were trying to get
Because we've just not got it yet
And it's our job to help Hunts out
Or all their work goes up the spout.
I grabbed that barrow really quick
Its light when empty, isn't it Nick
A fork or shovel, which to use
Chip falls through forks and thats bad news.
With shovel heaved you get some in
The barrow that is, wheres my gin
Now the march for miles up path
When I get home i'm in the bath.
Oh the sweat just pours away
I'm told this job lasts half a day
I wheel the blessed chip to site
Then spread it round with all my might.
My muscles are all aching now
And so's the frown upon my brow
A headache isn't far away
I think I've had enough today
Oh no Ron, you can't go home yet
There's holes to dig and trees to set
There's twigs to cut and paths to clear
You might just get home by next year
By ladder up a tree I go
To bang a nail in nice and slow
We''ll hang a box here just for Tits
If I fall down i'll be in bits.
I'm fed up with the up and down
Am I a monkey or a clown
This ladder should be motorised
Or something will be compromised.
Ian toye works on and on
And Nick as well, oh no he's gone
Francisca Shaw, so very busy
Time for home, i'm feeling dizzy.
Ive now gone home to eat my tea
And put my feet up generally
The rubbish in the park will wait
We'll do that on a different date
And so to sleep perchance to dream
but woke up with a sudden scream
Giant birds and Giant trees
And Giant Nick with knobbly knees.
