Comb my hair into a Danny Kaye quiff, take a spanner in my hand and a lead pipe between the teeth, cry Fifteen two, fifteen four and a pair's fruit and leap into the undisputed lead again.

Roll a ratty and a badger, then a very fine uncle Tom Cobley with Gay Abandon

Gay has a hissy fit and stops playing

Join up the dots on the hop-scotch square .

Look for support.

Finding wooden leg belabour the cheese till it is lead free again

Put salt and pepper on the chips and go for bust.

Whew!!!!
