an old riff on mother goose

She sells sea-shells on the sea shore;
The shells that she sells are sea-shells I’m sure.
So if she sells sea-shells on the sea shore,
I’m sure that the shells are sea-shore shells.

-Mother Goose

 She Sells Seashells

she shells the shellfish from the seashells

at the Sizzler™ in sandringham,

then she goes down to the seaside and sells the seashells.

she sells seashells down by the seaside.

why the hell she sell seashells?

seaside’s stacked with stupid seashells,

nobody needs to buy seashells down by the seaside.

(don’t know why she sells seashells but she

sure as hell smells like seashells

from high tide to low tide.)

I’ve got this little shotgun shop down by the seaside.

i sell shotguns and shotgun shells

down by the seaside.

the sandringham Sizzler™ is having a super summer

salad and seafood sale

so she is having her stupid super summer

sellout sale on seashells down by the seaside.

she is down by the seaside

selling seashells and

i shove shotgun shells into my shotgun

i have fun

shooting seagulls

with my shotgun

from high tide to low tide

and shotgun shells shatter seashells

and seagulls scream like hells bells

down by the seaside.
