it

it’s as big as a biggun as round as a thing
made out of rubble and pretzels and string
and if you are quiet you might hear it sing
for it knows all the words to it’s song, my dears
and it knows all the words to it’s song

if you have a sixpence you can get one for cash
at a kid’s party a certain sure smash
when you switch it on take care it don’t crash
they’ve a habit of going quite wrong, my dears
and a habit of going quite wrong

I saw my first when I was nowt but a lad
a gift from my mother when I had been bad
for the shape and the texture drove me quite mad
while it gave off a terrible pong, my dears
and it gave off a terrible pong

now I am much older and set in my ways
I can turn a sharp corner and turn a smart phrase
but I’m in this place for the rest of my days
the bedlam where we both belong, my dears
the bedlam where we both belong
