The Spoonbill Generator

Swinging the Tarzan

They trained me, from mine early years [Roland]

To whistle while I worked [Beefy]

To bother the ungrateful ears [Roland]

of loungers where they lurked [Barry Fairbairn]

While Tarzan, in the Public Bar [Roland]

Wrings hops into a Mason jar [Beefy]

But no one trained me how to duck [Kansas Sam]

To weave, to cover arse; [E Greejius]

That I am here is down to luck [Beefy]

My life is but a farce [loaf]

OK for Tarzan - on the square! [E Greejius]

But me: I've stopped my swinging there [Kansas Sam]

If ever Tarzan, swigging beer, [E Greejius]

Lets loose of vine and falls [Kansas Sam]

He'd land on leopard-spotted rear [Kevin Andrew Murphy]

And dodge all its attempted mauls [ambyr]

But when I fall I fall on steel [clew]

A curse on thee, banana peel! [Kevin Andrew Murphy]
