"No Sirree" Rhymes!

Updated on October 17, 2016

I love to write, I have been writing and journaling since I was very young, and I especially enjoy short stories, parodies and poetry.

1Twinkle Twinkle Shooting Star

Twinkle twinkle shooting star

I wonder how, where, why and what you are.

Up above the world so high

But like a dummy such was I.

My astronomy is lacking to be honest,

Because that shooting star was a deadly comet


2Mary had a little Sam

Mary had a little Sam whose fleece was white as snow

And everywhere that Mary went Sam was sure to go

He followed her every day, which really wasn’t cool

She said “get lost” and called the cops, what a giant tool! (fool)

I’m sorry for the trick I played, but Sam did wear lamb’s wool.
There really was no other way, to make this believable!


3Hush little baby don’t say a word

Hush, little baby, don't say a word.
Papa's gonna buy you a mockingbird

If that mockingbird won’t sing,

You’re not entitled to every thing!

Our love for you will never pass

You still don’t get all that you ask!

Cos if we did we’d soon go broke,

And we’d have to live out on the road

It’s time for you to be grateful.

Enough of all this marketing bull!

Things won’t work the way that you wanna

A lesson you’ll learn as you get older

And if our dog named Rover won’t bark

We’ll all be glad when it gets dark!

If you can get these lessons down,

You’ll still be the sweetest baby in town!

      Thanks Jodah. I may be writing more in the future. It's hard because there are already so many, and other time restraints for me right now.

      I appreciate your comment.

      Your own unique take on these children's rhymes is quite a joy to read and gave a smile. Good job, Davo.
