not trying to put this one over on you.
have you heard about the man from Bologna?
was chosen one day, to go on his heavenly way
he decided to stay a bit longer.
see he loved to caress the ladies
give them a very big hug.
only chance was to have a quick dance
at times, the odd jitterbug.
prance around and he'd squirm with delight
he'd rub himself up, so very close
fact his partners felt quite overwhelmed
And some became quite lachrymose!
order to delay his heavenly passage
a pump his stomach he inflates
that, when the call came, to cash in his chips,
got stuck in those great pearly gates.
come along son!” said the keeper
your to go see the Big Reaper!”
us a chance, I'd like just one more dance,
I don't want to go any deeper!"
just this last time, you can go back to earth.
don't keep trying it on, my very old mate.
the final call comes, you'd better be quick.
Otherwise we'll weld up the big pearly gate."
he's back with us now, dancing daintily.
eyes focused at every Ball.
ears well attuned to make very sure
responds quickly, to his final call.
He’ll miss his cuddles and kisses,
other activities that I won't mention.
when they start to tot up all his devious sins.
probably end up in heavenly detention!
