John's Wife

John’s wife was a good housewife But she had one bad habit When all alone with John She couldn’t half rabbit. She was pleasant enough And she baked a nice bun But when all alone with John She was the biggest nagger under the sun. She was generous and kind A woman any man would adore But when all alone with John He wanted to head for the door. She had soft and tender skin She had sparkling blonde hair But when all alone with John She would not leave her chair. After twenty years of marriage When she was out he changed the locks Because if all alone once more with John He would have strangled her with his socks.
