    They kiss each other’s cheeks!
    Wearing jim-jams in the street!
    Back there they’d
    ’uddle ya in a van straight-
    make ya wear their jack-
    et for a working month!
    It was iperbowl in the book –
    Now it’s ‘hi-purrrr-burlee’.
    Very elaborate!
    (I guess that ball’s
    Just a skool-
    Disco – could be wrong
    You-Decide-fa-ya-self.)
