“EXCUSE ME, CAN I STRIP YOUR WILLOW

Had a reel good time when I went to the ceilidh

There were fiddles and drums and an improbable ukulele

I searched for a partner and found an Israeli

Fortunately for my poem, her name was Haley.

I drank so much water as I danced so gaily

The skin on my body was beginning to turn scaly

The dance police were shocked-sent me to the Old Bailey

My moves were so crap-looked like a capercaille.

It’s very hard to find many rhymes for ceilidh

I therefore must improvise for this finale

To get another partner I used tact like Disraeli

“Dance with you?” she said “I’d prefer Arfur Daley”.

? ?

Take your partner by the hand

Throw them around until they land

Jiggle and joggle and go through arches

Strip the Willow and skip the marches.

My partner was beautiful I thought I might gain a kiss

Instead I got an elbow in the epiglottis

I looked for my partner-where the hell was she?

We were due for a swing and there was only one of me.

I looked down the line and could see her wiggling

No wonder she was behind she just stood there giggling

Stuck on someone’s arm and way behind the dance

She was laughing so much I nearly pissed my pants.
