PANTO RHYME


In this modern day, of computers to play
We forget where old wisdom was stored.
We just haven't time, for a nursery rhyme,
That the kids in past ages adored, adored.
That the kids in past ages adored

So characters felt they were fading away
And a meeting was held in Toad Hall
The spokesperson Rat, there promoted the Cat.
To the Captain, in charge of them all, them all.
To the captain in charge of them all.

Expeditions were planned, to scour every land
And find them a place to to retire
A home by the sea, where all pantos are free
And the stars can all slowly expire, expire.
And the stars can all slowly expire.

you may think it daft, but the Owl built a craft
Out of what he had left from his lunch.
There were carrots and peas, leftovers like these.
And crewed by a very odd bunch, odd bunch.
And crewed by a very odd bunch.

So the Owl and the pussycat  went to sea
In a beautiful green pea boat
Cat said to Owl, the weathers turned foul,
Do you think that these veggies will float, will float,
Do you think that these veggies will float.

Before he could speak, the boat sprang a leak
And everyone thought it would sink
But Cat was no fool, so he spoke to them all
Suggestions required now, I think, I think
Suggestions required now I think

All there agreed, that they needed more speed
To get the whole crew back to shore
Cos if they went down. They would certainly drown
So Captain cat asked them once more, once more
So captain cat asked them once more

Then Little miss Muffet, sat tight on her tuffet
Said We’ll ask the spider to row
With four legs a side and the pull of the tide
We’ll speed up our vessel so slow, so slow,
We’ll speed up our vessel so slow.

The prediction proved true, and  the little boat flew
To the land ‘neath the silvery moon,
Where cutlery chanced,  their luck as they danced.
And the dish had a crush on the spoon, the spoon.
And the dish had a crush on the spoon.

Where little jack Horner, recluse in his corner,
Stares hard at a pie in the sky.
And little dogs laugh, as a cow and its calf
Eat mushrooms and think they can fly, can fly.
Eat mushrooms and think they can fly.

With his crew now ashore, captain cat said “explore”
We will search till a haven is found.
I'm told ones been seen, near the magical bean.
Where the fairytale stories abound, abound.
Where the fairytale stories abound.

Then spoke, an old hag; just a man dressed in drag,
Said she knew how to find the great bean
With its stalk  growing high, past the pie in the sky.
Where the Giants are jolly and green, and green
Where the Giants are jolly and green.

They marched off inland, captain cat and his band.
They came across little Bo Peep
Laid down on the ground, with the lambs all around.
She had dozed off while counting her sheep, her sheep,
She had dozed off while counting her sheep.

They woke shepherdess, and she gave the address,
Of the home run by Jack and by Jill
And then to confound, She said turn around,
It's behind you, up there on the hill, the hill,
It's behind you up there on hill.

They all turned about, at a terrible shout,
From man who came tumbling down
Then a scream from his wife, can you please save his life,
I believe that he's broken his crown, his crown.
I believe that he's broken his crown.

The clever old Owl, bound his head with a towel
And got him back to his abode.
It seemed like a cure, and so Jill said I'm sure.
A debt to this Owl here is owed, is owed.
A debt to this Owl here is owed.

Captain cat, fleet of mind, said now that's very kind.
And I think as we’re all refugees
That what we need most, is a home on this coast.
And to stay here if this town agrees, agrees.
And to stay here if this town agrees.

The town had a vote, and it's worthy of note,
That the cross placed in every page.
Was, yes, they can stay, and be part of our play.
Because all of the world is a stage, a stage
Because all of the world is a stage.
