Socks For The Wearing (a gentle parody)

“Socks For The Wearing”

These are my socks for the wearing
I change them before they
Get smelly, they’ve lasted a while

This is my short for the wearing
I like it, the cool shade of grey
I’ve been wearing all my life

Thinking about this, I’m quite mad
Thinking it over, I’m dangerous and bad
Apart from the ‘dangerous’ and ‘bad’ thing

Ask me and I will say
That I’m not Squirrel Nutkin… today.

“Song For The Asking” by Paul Simon

Here is my song for the asking
Ask me and I will play
So sweetly, I’ll make you smile

This is my tune for the taking
Take it, don’t turn away
I’ve been waiting all my life

Thinking it over, I’ve been sad
Thinking it over, I’d be more than glad
To change my ways for the asking

Ask me and I will play
All the love that I hold inside
