We are going to play- New Christmas Carols -or rather old Christmas Carols with new words-you can either carry on with this one make up new words or start you own that other can follow-does not have to be Christmassy can be clean, naughty,funny,- doesn't matter this is my first attempt~~~~~~~~
The holly and the ivy
The ivy is a weed
The holly is a prickly bush
Where my dog just peed.
Ok, so do I carry on from you, or start another one?
I've done jury service once. The first case was open and shut, the defendant had been seen committing the (relatively minor) crime and identified by two policemen and all was proceeding as it should but then the judge dismissed it because someone hadn't filled in a bit of paperwork correctly!!!!! The second case we got through but I can't remember much about it apart from the fact that one of the lawyers present was about to go on holiday and was just anxious to get through it so he could leave. My abiding memory of the experience is with late starts, early finishes and red tape the whole thing is the most incredibly wasteful use of money that I have ever encountered.
Becks -carry on-if you can
I want it to be like Perry Mason or Crown Court-another illusion shattered
Just tried to carry on with something am making for baby for Christmas. Completely screwed it up. OH suggests I wait till feeling better - but bored!
No balls for Hungry Hippos. we used marbles - often got lost!! - but usually enogh around with 2 boys.
The Holly and the Ivy
Are supposed to be in bloom!
But can't see any berries,
Must hit it with a broom!
The rising of the son
Means he must be fed
The clock has just struck12
His mum'll take him breakfast in bed
Here's one I prepared earlier
God rest you merry gentlefolk,But actually not yet - There's cards to write and stamps to buyAnd presents still to get.Oh thank the lord for VISA cards, cos they put off the debt.*Oh a tiepin for uncle Leroy*, Uncle Leroy (rep. from * to *)
In August and SeptemberThe Christmas goods arriveAnd unto shopping centresThe Organised do driveBuy everything upon the list and still get home by five.Oh a twinset for Great Auntie Joy... (you know what to do)
Buy turkey for the freezerIngredients for pudStock up on crisps and TwigletsAnd suchlike party food.Ah, better buy a tree straightway while they're still looking good.And get tinsel that fire won't destroy ....
Hear carols in the precinctSee Santa in his grotLook out for stocking fillers - Ten quid should buy the lot.And, yea, an Advent Calendat must never be forgot -With daily chocs for each girl and boy ....
The holly is so sharp though,
and it hurts when it pricks,
So I better go, and fetch my gloves,
And a bloody great big stick!
A stick is not good for that
It has other uses too
I use my MIL's special stick
The one on which she flew.
Oh the rising of the sun,
never happens over here,
Just rain and clouds, and a windy breeze,
Summer never came this year.
Flo-is that an original work?
Yes, all my own work. I call it the St Andrew's Day Carol, so it's come out 11 days early.
I've always enjoyed inventing silly rhymes and pomes :- )
The rising of the sun
The curtains are pulled back
Forgot to put my pants on
Or wear my dirty mac
The holly and the ivyIs all that I can grow,And brambles ramble everywhere -A tale of woe from Flo.
At the rising of the sunI looked across the road (y)Saw a bloke with no underpantsI think his dog's called Cod(y)
The Holly is now cut back,
And most is on the floor,
This is going to be, the crappiest wreath,
I have hung on my door.
