Hallo beste mensen,


Ik ben op zoek naar een oud Engels schoolliedje/gedichtje die mijn moeder vroeger heeft geleerd en waar ze hl graag nog de tekst van wilt weten.
Ik hoop echt dat iemand de rest van het liedje/gedichtje kent, zo gaat het:


There once was a beetle


who went for a walk


Evry day at a quarter to nine


Hed study the sky


with his beady black eye


To see if the weather was fine


And if it were wet


his umbrella hed get


Unfirl it and twirl it with glee


Now isnt this nice


 what a pleasing device


Tralala how delightful, said he.


One day he was walking


not far from his home


When a tragedy nearly occured


For out of the sky with a hideous cry


Appeared an enormous fat bird.


Mr. Beetle was small


Only half an inch tall


But his brain was remarkably stout


------


------



With my brolly Ill fetch you a clout.


 


(de ---- zijn 2 regels die ze niet meer weet.)


Ik hoop dat iemand me kan helpen. Alvast heel erg bedankt!

Only just seen this. Better late than never I suppose.

The two lines as I remember being taught by my mother (in England) are:

"Get along, or my word,

you vulgar great bird"

hope we you look back and see this ten years after asking the question.

maybe you already know the words by now.
