Tell me that I am a hero,

Get ready to fight for your freedom' - FredTheGooner

Clears her morning meal.
She dabs her skin with pretty smells
Concealing to appeal.

Nothing can stop them,
Around every river and canal their power is growing.
Stamp them out!
We must destroy them,
They infiltrate each city with their thick dark warning odour.' - FredTheGooner

10 I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)

'There's always been Ethel:
"Jacob, wake up! You've got to tidy your room now."

Over the garden wall, two little lovebirds - cuckoo to you!
Keep them mowing blades sharp...' - FredTheGooner
