Waht`s it like to head the family? Here is the last of my family series...Man actually speaks for itself
but then again...we are all different, aren`t we?

Man Talk



I have a bond and I`m not fond of paying off my debt,

I have a wife, who is my life, the best that you can get.

I have a leaky roof, a pool, a brand new motorcar,

A dog, a cat, a tame white rat and a singing budgerigar.


I have two kids, a boy and girl, the apple`s of my eye

I hope that I can calm them down a mite before I die.

I have a lawn, a shirt that’s torn, a well stocked built in bar

An aching head, a gammy leg and a gall stone in a jar.


I have a club, its like a pub and I go most Friday nights,

Its where I sit and drink and think until out go the lights.

I have a boss, a real dead-loss who daily does his rounds,

I`d really like to bust his jaw but he weighs two hundred pounds.


I have a set of golf clubs and four-dozen golfing balls,

Some fencing poles and toilet rolls whenever nature calls.

A caddy cart that just wont start and a score card that’s on par,

A pair of Zuiss binoculars for when I hit too far.


I have a secretary who`s quite sweet, her name is Sally Anne,

She`s blonde and pert with a nice short skirt, with legs that sport a tan.

She never misses birthdays or appointments out of Town

That’s why I bought her lingerie and a brand new party gown.


I have the strangest feeling my Missus will be upset,

I bought a new Mercedes Benz, but I haven`t told her yet.

It`s worth more than the family house, with a twenty foot yacht thrown in,

It makes a great new statement and since when is opulence a sin?


I have a photo album packed full of action shots,

A garage full of family junk, some pale blue kiddies cots.

I have a set of dentures, specs, and an operation scar,

A wife who says she loves me, my precious guiding star.
