DonD Song Challenge! - Part 87 (48) RE: SONG CHALLENGE! - Part 87 29 Aug 02


To travel on the motorcoach
From King's Heath to Granny's house
Costs a hamster a hefty 10 p fare
No charge for dog or cat or mouse!
He barely weighs six ounces
His cage not many more,
No seating space he'd occupy,
But stay cozy on the floor!

CHORUS
Oh, the driver's heart was marble
His foot firm on the floor;
"No ten pence fare, by gum, I swear,
That hamster's out the door!

Little Jordan's heart was breaking,
"But Gramma gave it me;
I'm off there for a visit
So Nibbles she can see."
The driver would not relent,
Stubborn, he held his ground,
Jordan and Nibbles would not ride
'Til that last ten p was found.

CHORUS

First Northampton heard the story
From Jordan's irate Dad
No fools they, they quick gave way,
Knew the PR could be bad.
From this day forth, they did proclaim,
All hamsters ride on the house!
But what about that driver --
The dirty heartless louse?

CHORUS

The moral of this story
By all let this be heard,
If you're ever in Northampton
Beware that heartless turd!
Put your hamster in your pocket
If he isn't just too big,
And don't even think of travelling
With your darling guinea pig!

CHORUS
