Lyrics: 

v1
It was a million years ago about
I was almost two feet tall
When my Granny took me to see this man
In the local village hall

v2
He was on a stage that wobbled a lot
Up and down it moved
And his strutting legs in shiny green
I remember I wasn't amused

pre ch
Then the most terrifying time of my life
Happened as I tried not to snooze

chorus
He caught my eye
I was totally fazed
Wanting to be somewhere else
He grabbed my hand
I pee'd myself
And pretended to be an Elf

v3
My Granny raved and stormed the stage
In a pink and purple rage
And dragged me home at once she did
I was ever so cool and blasé

pre ch
The most terrifying time of my life
Happened as I tried not to snooze

chorus
She caught my eye
I was totally fazed
Wanting to be somewhere else
She grabbed my hand
I pee'd myself
And pretended to be an Elf

v4
Now I'm bigger and older too
I still try not to fart
My daughter doesn't have a clue
She thinks I'm acting a part

pre ch
The most wonderful time of my life
Happens when I try to snooze

chorus
She caught my eye
I was totally fazed
Wanting to be somewhere else
She grabbed my hand
I pee'd myself
And pretended to be an Elf

"My Granny raved and stormed the stage // In a pink and purple rage" - amazing image!! Nothing scarier than an angry grandmother. What a great vignette of a not-so-magic moment...

Oh, the chorus made me laugh out loud!! Great writing and great skirmishing!

“Hell of a weird theme,” huh? As I recall, you once gave “pancakes” as a skirmish prompt. Just sayin’…. Biggrin Biggrin Biggrin
