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
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.
