CHRISTMAS SHOPS ARE BUZZING

How much is that wasp in the window?
Not the one not making a sound,
Not the one crawling round on the floor,
Yes, THAT one buzzing around.

I’ve always wanted a wasp
As an alternative household pet
But up ‘til now I’ve not seen the one
That I’ve really wanted to get.

How much is that wasp in the window?
I’ve got the money to pay,
Hey, quick close the door, oh no,
Too late he’s getting away.

Now I’m sad the wasp in the window
Has gone, I’m suffering from shock
But I’ll pop back tomorrow morning
When you’ve got some new wasps in stock.
