OPENED IN ERROR.
A man had bad news about his mother
Had loads to drink one after another
But later on that night
Was seen happy and bright
Said that letter was meant for my brother.
An old sailor by the name of Angus
Fell in love and married an octopus
They had a son James
Who won gold at games
Found having six arms in sport was a plus.
The horned devil had set himself one goal
To collect from those who had a dark soul
He was on to a winner
Saw mankind a great sinner
Said hells fires will need a lot more coal.
There was an old woman from Nantucket
Had no teeth so her food she would suck it
But one day she choked
On meat that was smoked
And sadly that's how she kicked the bucket.
There once was a young girl called Big Nelly
When she walked by she shook like a jelly
Was told to lose weight
Before its too late
So doctor's have now stapled her belly.
