IN THE LAND

OF THE BUMBLEY BOO

By Spike Milligan

In the Land Of The Bumbley Boo
The people are red white and blue.
     They never blow noses
     Or ever wear clotheses.
What a sensible thing to do.

In the Land of the Bumbly Boo
You can buy lemon pie at the zoo.
     They give away foxes
      In little pink boxes

And bottles of dandelion stew.

In the Land of The Bumbly Boo
You never see a Gnu,
     But thousands of cats
     Wearing trousers and hats
Made of pumpkin and pelican glue.

Oh the Bumbley Boo! The Bumbley Boo!
That's the place for me and you
     So hurry let's run;
     The train leaves at one
For the Land of the Bumbley Boo

The wonderful Bumbley Boo Boo Boo
The wonderful Bumbley Boo!

(Of course, it's not my poem, but I love nonsense poems.  The rhythm tells me that it's limericks?  Correct me if I'm wrong.)
