English is so difficult to learn

    

Why is English is so difficult to learn

Is it the words or the verbs or the prepositions

English is so difficult to learn

You’ll be driven round the bend and unlikely to return

English is so difficult to learn

For its robbed other languages and kept the loose change


When you sit down and you really take a look at it

English is a language that has really put its foot in it

All the dippy daffy wicky wacky inconsistencies

You really have to marvel at its sheer versatility


Spare a thought for the learner




Ode to Corona Virus

This Virus thing is really rather scary

Can leave us thinking what can we do

But i know this thing wont last forever 

With our endeavour

Things will get better

So young or old and stuck at home

Put on your inventive shoes

And read a book, or learn to cook

And do ... what you gotta do! 


A plea to A Bee - 1ST DAY OF Spring

See below for the lyrics!

Lyrics

A Plea to a Bee

Please mister bee

Come pay us a visit

You should see Dolores

She's looking exquisite

As for all the other flowers 

Theres too many to name 'em

But one thing's for sure, they'll show you their stamen...


So pls mister bee, come visit our flowers

They so wanna see you its all they talk about for hours (repeat)


Come buzzing our way and check on our pollen

On fine sunny days they don't look so solemn

We know you bees are busy

You bees always are 

But why don't you drop in on us

Mister bee superstar
