Little Old Man
A little old
man sitting on a park bench,
Feeding the ducks and the birds,
When along came a man in a uniform, who said,
"You can't do that, haven't you heard?
You're not allowed to feed the ducks and birds
It's in the council's book of words
So the little old man picked
up his bread,
He didn't look up, he just
hung his head,
And slowly walked away
To the park where the children stay.
and joy of the children at play
Made the old man lift his head
He couldn't give the children his stale old bread,
So he bought a bag of lollies instead.
"What are you up to, you dirty old bugger?"
These words coming from an irate mother,
"We know your type, giving lollies to kids,
We'll tell the police and tell them what you did,
Go on sod off!"
So the old man picked up his lollies and bread,
Walked away, didn't raise his head,
to himself, I'm better off dead,
slowly walked away
To the place where all his
"I 'll be down to see you pretty soon,
You'll have to move over and make some room"
"Sorry mate, we're pretty full down here,
There won't be a vacancy for at least a year,
So sod off! go feed the ducks and the birds"
They hadn't heard of the council's book of words.
