723 : A scientist goes exploring...


A scientist in the Southern Pacific
Was given a warning, specific:
“Those girls in grass skirts
Are all terrible flirts;
But touch, for a death most horrific.”

The temptation was too much to withstand
But things didn't go quite as he planned.
The girls trussed him and staked him
And then slowly baked him
Over hot rocks in the sand.

    a little bird warned you 'bout this
    but instead you went out and got pissed
    you were told not to touch
    the grass skirts - that's too much
    now you're sizzling on a barbecue spit

      buy some bras from the store in Wapping

      Three little maids from near Fiji,
      One with her skirt above her knee,
      You'd be well advised to leave her be,
      Three little maiiiiiiiids are we!

      Three little maids beside the sea,
      Give us a beer and forget the tea,
      Make us an offer and we will see,
      Three little maiiiiiiiids are we!

    4. Three little maids as sweet as me
      Full of cheek and repartee,
      Sand gets everywhere, as you will see,
      Three little maiiiiiiiids are we!

      Three little maids who all agree
      Looks are cheap and largely free
      But if you touch you'll pay a fee,
      Three little maiiiiiiiids are we!

  4. He was warned. Thus he became the creator of his own misfortune and demise.

    Sic transit gloria mundi.

    Peace and joy!
