Shark Salad!


Juggle toasters in the rain
ask a zombie to your party
wear a sheep when you mean shirt
and teach your dog karate

go swimming in a chicken-pool
brush your teeth with lipstick
take a chimpanzee to school
and watch it go ballistic

ring someone on your frying pan
eat ice-cream with a penguin
fill up the car with chocolate sauce
then listen to the engine

try surfing on an ironing board
in a wetsuit made of pasta
use cabbages for running shoes
you can bet that you’ll run faster

don’t worry if you mix up words
saying shark instead of salad
it’s fun to talk in doughnuts, mate
that’s the point of this old ballad.
