It’s a date! | Peter Matthews
Once upon a universe I came upon a lass
I wooed and chased her every day and caught her on the grass
She didn’t seem to fancy me and told me to get lost
But I was rather adamant and didn’t count the cost
Her father took exception and went to see my Mum
She shouted rather loudly and smacked me on my bum
The outcome of this saga I’m happy to relate
Is that the lass now fancies me, tonight we’re on a date!
