Birthday Present


It’s Jane’s birthday,

the reason she isn’t found in her birthday suit
Big babe, chic chick spreading round,
feeling like a butterfly
Floating, gloating, rolling, rolling stone gathering moss
Gathering presents from sundry men:
Wordsworth gave a lovely poem
Tom gave a golden necklace
Dick gifted lace hot shorts
Harry gave a jingle bell
Jerry gave a drum roll
Paul played a piano
Peter piped a hymn
Sam sang a song
Bill gave a peck
Jim gave a hug
And someone else something else.
