‘I’m giving up chocolate for lent’,
Are you mad? You’ll look like a dent.
You’re all lovely and soft like a peach,
Why be hard like a pebbly beach?
‘I’m giving up drinking for lent’,
Well please go and live in a tent,
I don’t need to hear,
That you’re missing your beer,
So I’d rather that you just went.
‘I’m giving up smoking for lent’
That’s a great idea.
I’m not giving up anything for lent,
But I’ll try some new things instead,
As it’s nearly spring,
New things it will bring,
Like music, and freshly baked bread.
