Sing a song of sickness after a barrel full of rye Two men drank the whiskey and soon they were pie eyed They woke up in a prison cell; their heads began to ring Now they know the consequences too much alcohol can bring Sadly in their drunken state they’d got into a fight Bill gave Ted a left hook - he looked a sorry sight When their hangovers were over they stood before the law Each received a hefty fine and now their heads are sore! San Woo challenged me to write a parody of her favourite nursery rhyme ... sing a song of sixpence 10~02~16

Hi Jan, Once again you have rewritten another nursery rhyme. Too much boozin could land you in the slammer lol. I think you met the challenge. PS. I must admit I had to go read" Sing a Song of Sixpence" because I wasn't familiar with it. You did a good job.
