When J Cooper-Clarke Reluctantly got a Puppy for Christmas

NB Please read this in your best J C-C accent for best effect

Steaming hot or frozen cold

I pick up his poop when I am told

But, bugger this for a lark

I’m famous me, I’m John Cooper-Clarke.

And goes to the moon.”

It’s the quality that counts –
And it’s there ‘I’ win!”.
