GUEST,Bruce Baillie BS: Washing snotty handkerchifs (44) RE: BS: Washing snotty handkerchifs 25 Sep 06


Since I was young about six years old, my nose has run with perpetual cold,
The doctor he tried but he just couldn't hold back the tide that kept making my Sleeves green!

Chorus
Greensleeves they just didn't look right, on me best Sunday suit or a shirt that was white, I kept me mam scrubbing from morning till night, to try to get rid of my greensleeves.

It caused quite a stir when I started school, all the other kids thought me a slovenly fool, but they laughed when one of them slipped in a pool of the stuff that kept making my sleeves green!

All my life I have suffered such puns, like "Your nose must be fast, cos it often runs!" and it put more than icing on Ma's current buns, and ruined my Peruvian nose-flute!

While kissing my girlfriend one night she said "Chum, I think I've just swallowed your chewing gum!" but she gipped when I said, "No, it's just a hard lump, of the stuff that keeps making my sleeves green!"

Final chorus
Greensleeves are the bane of my life, greensleeves have kept me from a wife, I'm a social pariah for the rest of my life, because of my horrible greensleeves!
