About The Video
There was a young person of Bantry,
Who frequently slept in the pantry;
When disturbed by the mice,
She appeased them with rice,
That judicious young person of Bantry.
There was an Old Man at a Junction,
Whose feelings were wrung with compunction
When they said, "The Train's gone!"
He exclaimed, "How forlorn!"
But remained on the rails of the Junction.
There was an old man of Ibreem,
Who suddenly threaten'd to scream;
But they said, "If you do,
We will thump you quite blue,
You disgusting old man of Ibreem!"
There was an old person of Minety,
Who purchased five hundred and ninety
Large apples and pears,
Which he threw unawares
At the heads of the people of Minety.
There was an old person of Wilts,
Who constantly walked upon stilts;
He wreathed them with lilies
That elegant person of Wilts.
There was an old man of Thermopylae,
Who never did anything properly;
But they said, "If you choose
To boil eggs in your shoes,
You shall never remain in Thermopylae."
There was an old person of Grange,
Whose manners were scroobious and strange;
He sailed to St. Blubb
In a waterproof tub,
That aquatic old person of Grange.
There was an old person of Deal,
Who in walking used only his heel;
When they said, "Tell us why?"
He made no reply,
That mysterious old person of Deal.
There was an old person of Newry,
Whose manners were tinctured with fury;
He tore all the rugs,
And broke all the jugs,
Within twenty miles' distance of Newry.
There was an old man on the Humber,
Who dined on a cake of Burnt Umber;
When he said, "It's enough!"
They only said, "Stuff!
You amazing old man on the Humber!"
There was an old man of Dumblane,
Who greatly resembled a crane;
But they said, "Is it wrong,
Since your legs are so long,
To request you won't stay in Dumblane?"
