60 year old find!

Post by Ciderman »

I found this in an old box of photos and cards. I wrote it for my dad's birthday and I have never seen it since that day! In a huge long envelope marked "Third Class Camel Rate", 3 large ink written stamps for "2 Splon".

Yer got fassons of fings
Wot good wevver brings
Ana pair a red and blue braces
You've a parrot wot sings
An a fissful a rings
An a toppat ter wear to the races.

I seen in yer garridge
Some high steppin carriage
Wat yer could be seen in the tahn in
Yer never eats porridge
Or similar ollage
But bacon and eggs nicely brownin.

You've cloves in yer wall
What you ain't worn at all
You got trousers wiv dangerous edges
Ya got shoes for a ball
An for walkin an all
Wiv big spikes for the difficult ledges.

We ad a nice pair
Of Orang Utang there
But I see from your barfroom you've got 'em
Then we looked in a lair
Of a white polar bear
But I see in your frig- You are rotten!

Happy Birfday to dad
Happy Birfday to dad
Happy Birfday to dad from his chilluns
We're all very glad
That he's our ole dad
HAPPY BIRFDAY TO DAD FROM HIS CHILLUNS
