If I

If I ran a hairdresser’s I’d call it ‘curl up and dye’ I think it’s a very clever name, you can see the reason why If I was a carpenter I’d be called Mr Wood My sign would read ‘Mr Wood would fix it if he could’ If I was a glazier I’d be called ‘ I know your pane’ So if you broke a window, you’d soon shout out my name If I was a DIY man I’d call myself ‘Bodge it and Scarper’ I guess that’s not such a good idea!
