Carpet John

My friend Carpet John Who I met through a girlfriend Was a funny one. He once told me of his days at school When he wanted to go swimming In the school swimming pool., He asked his Mom to get him something to wear And when he saw what he bought him He wasn't prepared. Imagine a tall lanky guy Dressed in terry towelling swimming trunks That looked like a babies diaper Far from a hunk in his new swimming trunks,. He jumped straight in to the pool But came our looking like a fool His trunks were so full of water They swelled like a huge balloon And water leaked out in leaks everywhere Hr was so embarrassed He never went swimming again Winder why. He also told me he hated soccer at school But he was made to take part it was a rule One day he was just stood with his arms crossed Over his chest And you wouldn't believe what happened next The ball hit him bounced off and he scored a goal in the net. It was a very important match and he had saved the day He was a hero and he didn't even play They carried him around the field with a lap of honour You'd think he'd single handedly won the world cup Well the other team Just bowed their heads and give up.
