Larry Is A Guernsey

(to Gerry and the Pacemakers' Ferry Cross the Mersey)

He chews on greens ev’ry day
Cud keeps his hunger at bay

Our Larry
Is a Guernsey
See him stand
In place he loves
Until one day.

Ethan’s a touch unaware
He is a man quite impaired

So calmly,
Stood the Guernsey
Said Ethan,
“I’m prepared,
I’ve got my gloves.”

Bucket plopped down near a small chair
Boy thought that he’d been pranked
Larry, he thought, was girl not boy
He gave the wrong thing a yank.

People continue to talk
Ethan, at milk, he will balk.

Now Larry,
Is in Jersey
In green field
Of leaves he’s loved
On plate displayed
To his dismay
Nice filet
