The Limerick Song

The Limerick Song

Aye-aye-aye-aye,
In China they never grow chilly
So sing me another verse
That’s worse than the first verse
Make sure that it’s foolish and silly.
A canner exceedingly canny
One morning remarked to his granny,
“A canner can can anything that he can,
But a canner can’t can a can, can he?”

Aye-aye-aye-aye,
In China they never grow chilly
So sing me another verse
That’s worse than the first verse
Make sure that it’s foolish and silly.
A tutor who tooted the flute
Tried to tutor two tooters to toot
Said the two to the tutor, “Is it tougher to toot
Or to tutor two tooters to toot?”

Aye-aye-aye-aye,
In China they never grow chilly
So sing me another verse
That’s worse than the first verse
Make sure that it’s foolish and silly.
A certain young fellow named Beebee
Wished to marry a lady named Phoebe
“But,” he said, “I must see what the minister’s fee be,
Before Phoebe be Phoebe Beebee.”

Aye-aye-aye-aye,
In China they never grow chilly
So sing me another verse
That’s worse than the first verse
Make sure that it’s foolish and silly.
