Daddy was a Bank-Robber!

“Daddy was a Bank-Robber!”

Daddy was a Bank-Robber

Mother was a Jones-Robinson

That’s why my surname is so long

Ian Maxwell Aloysius Bank-Robber-Jones Robinson!

And, talking of my imaginary father – which we were –

he never hurt nobody!

Which, as you can see, is a double-negative, meaning that he never ‘didn’t’ hurt no (or ‘any’) body or maybe he did and hurting ‘nobody’ means he was a kind and thoughtful bank-robber.

Maybe.

At least he wasn’t as grammatically mixed up as I am!
