The Spoonbill Generator

Wherever Tuesday Blues

Little Jack Horner sat in a corner       [F]

Little Bo Peep by his side       [Beefy]

They whistled a tune       [Wilbur]

From now until noon       [Wilbur]

And played with some spoons       [Wilbur]

That filled all the room       [Wilbur]

That made the sheep swoon       [Roland]

And kept The Old Dame stuck inside       [Apsley]

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep       [(trad)]

Her sheep has lost its wool       [Dassn't Say]

The Phantom Shearer       [Beefy]

Draws ever nearer       [F]

And Little Jack Horner cries, "Pull!"       [TG]

Little Boy Blue come blow your horn       [F]

Into Little Bo Peep's ear       [Apsley]

Come on, be an imp       [F]

She don't need no wimp       [Beefy]

But she'll make you regret it come morn.       [Marco]

Envoi       [Roland]

If I've told you once, I've told you ten times,       [Beefy]

That you should never let anything go       [Anon.]


I learnt to speak English one evening in Nīmes       [Roland]

But forgot all my French, except the word "Beau"       [Beefy]
