Gyppo

We settle on some lofty perch

Jo Bannister

We settle on some lofty perch
and run off a page, or a verse,

Gyppo

We settle on some lofty perch
and run off a page, or a verse,
as the syllables flow

Spell Chick

We settle on some lofty perch
and run off a page, or a verse,
as the syllables flow
and the missive does grow
Imperfect Reason My thoughts, such as they are.

Jo Bannister

We settle on some lofty perch
and run off a page, or a verse,
as the syllables flow
and the missive does grow
our newly-fledged talent we nurse.

Gyppo

We learn to use tempo, and pace,

Spell Chick

We learn to use tempo, and pace,
the sentences all interlace
Imperfect Reason My thoughts, such as they are.

Jo Bannister

We learn to use tempo, and pace,
the sentences all interlace,
the wit is sublime

Gyppo

We learn to use tempo, and pace,
the sentences all interlace,
the wit is sublime,
we lose all sense of time

Spell Chick

We learn to use tempo, and pace,
the sentences all interlace,
the wit is sublime,
we lose all sense of time
there's paper all over the place.
Imperfect Reason My thoughts, such as they are.

Gyppo

Now that the weather's turned cold

Spell Chick

Now that the weather's turned cold
Go outside, only if bold
Imperfect Reason My thoughts, such as they are.

Gyppo

Now that the weather's turned cold
Go outside, only if bold
and well-wrapped in fleece

Spell Chick

Now that the weather's turned cold
Go outside, only if bold
and well-wrapped in fleece
while waving a piece
Imperfect Reason My thoughts, such as they are.

Jo Bannister

Now that the weather's turned cold
Go outside, only if bold
and well-wrapped in fleece
while waving a piece
of hawthorn, to fend off the mould.

When the chill in the air makes you gasp
