Goodness gracious fiddle dee dee !

Somebody’s grandmother out to sea

Just where the breakers begin to bound

Somebody’s grandmother bobbing around

Up on the shore the people shout

“Give us a hand and we’ll pull you out !”

“No says the granny “I’m right as rain

And I’m going to go on till I get to Spain.”

(Written by Margaret Mahy)



There were these two children

And they were in bed

And it was

Time they were asleep

But they were making a huge noise

Shouting yelling and screaming

Look at me

Look at you

Let’s go mad

Yes ! Let’s go mad

Their Dad heard them

And he shouted up to them

Stop the noise

Stop the noise

If you don’t stop the noise

I’m coming upstairs

And I’ll give you

A bit of real touble

Everything went quiet

A few minutes later

One of the children called out

Dad ! Dad !

When you come up

To give us a bit of real trouble

Can you bring us up

A drink of water as well

Be glad your nose is on your face

Not pasted on some other place

For if it were where it is not

You might dislike your nose a lot

Imagine if your precious nose

Were sandwiched in  between your toes

That clearly would not be a treat

For you’d be forced to smell your feet

Your nose would be a source of dread

Were it attached atop your head

It soon would drive you to despair

Forever tickled by your hair

Within your ear your nose would be

An absolute catastrophe

For when you were obliged to sneeze

Your brain would rattle from the breeze

Your nose instead through thick and thin

Remains between your eyes and chin

Not pasted on some other place

Be glad your nose is on your face

Jumping over Jerusalem wall
