Poems inspired by Songs - 1 Little Alfy

April 17, 2015

In an earlier post (here), I said that I was going  to post, at some point,  some of the verses I wrote that were inspired by popular songwriters.  This first one (I think it's obvious, but I'll say it anyway) was inspired by the Beatles.

Little Alfy

Little Alfy, my boy, went down, don't you know
To paint picture-shows in the sand.
Oh my.  Oh, my, my. Ain't it grand, don't you know
To paint picture-shows in the sand.

Little Alfy, my boy, went down, don't you know
To paddle about and to play.
Oh my.  Oh, my, my. Ain't it grand, don't you know
To paddle about and to play.

Little Alfy, my boy, went down, in the sand, down to play.
Little Mary her picture to paint..
Oh my. Oh, my, my. Ain't it grand, grand to play
To play about something you ain't.

Little Alfy and Mary together did play
What a picture those sand dunes did see!
Oh my. Oh, my, my. Ain't it grand, grand to play,
And paddle about in the sea.
