Bless Up My Ickle Man
Bless up ickle pig.
This little piggy went to Cambridge.
This little piggy went to London.
This little piggy had so much fun.
This little piggy hug out with the mandem.
Bless up my little cow.
I don’t steal your babies milk.
Now your ickle calf should be running around with you.
Bless up my ickle chicken.
No mandem gonna crack your eggs open and throw them in a pan raw.
Never gonna see KFC at my door, so scramble keep you’re flesh licking fingers from my
One love door.
Bless up ickle lamb.
Baa baa momma sheep have you any lambs no g no g they
Have all gone to the slaughter man.
Bless up my ickle fox.
Never gunna wear your skin your fur is fire it keeps you warm so
Just shut the door.
Bless up my ickle rabbit.
Run rabbit run the farmers coming with his gun.
Never stop running because the farmers coming.
Bless up ickle fish.
Sorry to say that the oil fell into the ocean one day.
We all see. We all feel. We all think. We are not a meal.
Lets speak up for the ickle man that can’t say, nothing.
A Dogs Tail
I lay beside the road that day,
And tears splashed down my face,
My legs we saw, I was hungry too,
My life was a lonely place.
I saw you walk across the road,
You gently said hello.
You wiped away my failing tears,
and my trust began to grow.
I raised my head and wagged my tail
I knew you were my friend.
You offered me your helping hand,
And my heart began to mend.
You took me to the vets that day,
and never left my side.
I knew from then my life would change
And my joy I couldn’t hide.
You gave me all a dog could want,
We spend our life together.
I’m the happiest dog in the world today
Because I’m loved and cared forever.

There was a young vegan
Who just would not kill for no reason,
This kid would not eat
No cheese or no meat
And he hated the foxhunting season.
