Looney Tunes


The railways are running like clockwork
The hunt is a noble pursuit
A Formula bung
Is good for the lung
My cakehole is made out of fruit

Public schools cause us no trouble
The dome is terrifically jolly
Lone mums aren’t the sort
Who require support
I fell off the back of my trolley

Ireland is better divided
The royals are fun if you flatter
Of course it is prudent
To charge any student
I’m on the same stuff as my hatter
