The Baboon by Spike Milligan
There was a baboon, who one afternoon
Said I think I will fly to the sun,
So with two great palms, strapped to his arms,
He started his take off run,
Mile after mile he galloped in style, but never once left the ground,
Your running to slow, said a passing crow,
Try reaching the speed of sound
So he put on a spurt, by god how it hurt,
The soles of his feet caught fire,
There were great clouds of steam, as he raced through a stream,
But he still didn't get any higher
Racing on through the night, both his knees caught alight,
And smoke billowed out from his rear,
Quick to his aid, came a fire brigade,
Who chased his for over a year
Many moons passed by, did baboon ever fly?
Did he ever fly to the sun?
Well I've just heard today, that he's well on his way,
He'll be passing through Acton at one
P.S. Well, what do you expect from a baboon?
Hope you enjoyed it!
Wierdo on the loose! Run for your lifeeee!
