My Auntie June

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 My Auntie June
Arrived too soon
She wasn’t due today.
She wasn’t impressed
That the house was messed
But still she decided to stay.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 My Mum was upset
The house wasn’t clean yet,
She said, “She wasn’t expected.”
“If I thought that today she’d arrive,
For cleanliness I would strive,
And the house would not have been neglected.”

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 My Dad was not happy too
That she had arrived before she was due,
Although he had a different reason.
There was a game on TV
That he wanted to see,
It was the first game of the football season.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 He said to my Mum
“I’ve waited all summer long
For the seasons first game.
Now I have to miss
The game because of this,
And your sisters to blame.”

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 My Mum said to my Dad,
“Oh that’s not that bad
It’s only a stupid game grown men play.
You should be more concerned with
The state of the place where you live,
And that my sister saw it in such disarray.”

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 My Dad said, “I couldn’t care less
That this place is a mess.
That doesn’t matter at all.
The only thing that matters to me
Is that her turning up early
Means that I now can’t watch the football.”

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 My Mum, in despair,
Said, “Well you should care.
After all how would you feel,
If a sibling of yours
Walked through those doors
And a messy house it did reveal?”

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 They carried on this argument
So then I went
To check on my Auntie June.
She was having a ball
Watching the football
On the television in the living room.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 She asked me to join her
And also where my parents were.
I told her I didn’t know where.
She said, “That really is a shame.
This is a really good game
One with your father we should share.”

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 So we finished watching the game
Whilst my parents tried to blame
Each other for my Aunt coming to soon.
But it wasn’t so bad
And a good time was had.
By me and my Auntie June.
