SNAKES AND LADDERS
Snakes And Ladders
It’s raining out what shall we do?
Let’s play a game just me and you,
Turn off the tele I’ve found a game or two
AAH snakes and ladders that will do,
This is a game we haven’t played in a while
Last time I played I was only a child,
The boards setup which colour do you want to be?
You can go red, I want to be green,
Start at the bottom on number one
We’re gonna have a good half hour of fun,
This isn't a game you can play fast
You can go first I’ll go last,
Here’s the dice throw double to start
To get a double is really hard,
First throw you got double three
I knew you’d start before me,
My first throw aint as lucky as you
I only threw a three and a two,
Oi no cheating you got to play fair
You got to go down the snakes and up the stairs,
Finally got a double on my tenth go
And you’re already on number forty four,
Can’t believe it another snake head
Why can’t I land on a ladder instead?
This aint right I only went for a pee
And you’ve jumped to number seventy,
I’ve thrown another double do I get an extra go?
What’s the rules I don’t really know?
You’re on ninety seven you only need three more
Unlucky you scored a four,
I’m up the ladder right behind you
My turn to throw.....yes four and two,
Ladies and gentlemen we have a winner
I am a Pro not a beginner..........
