Closer to the car than anyone else?
You really really love your car
You check it lots of times
Weekends you wax and polish it
To keep it free of grime.
You've given it name
You stroke her when she's good
And we believe without a doubt . .
You'd marry it if you could.
Suffering from Go-Kart madness?
You're out there in the garage
Whenever you have spare time
Tinkering away with it
Getting covered in grease and grime.
You pack it up at weekends
And once again, off we go.
To the place where the race meeting is-
With everything in tow.
You look the part, you've got the gear
and boy, do you give it all you've got
But whilst you may win a few -
Lewis Haimilton/Valentino you are not.
DIY Themed Verse
You're up at dawn at weekends
Don on the overalls
After a quick breakfast
You're off, coz, "Duty calls!"
There's always something for you
To replace, mend and tweak.
You're at your happiest when your
Painting a wall or fixing a leak!
You've all the tools for all the jobs
Kept tidy in the shed.
You're not so tidy in the house-
at least that's what (your Mum, your Wife,) says!
Despite your capabilites
There's been some minor mishaps
Nails through water pipes and cables
That have got you in a flap.
But none of this has put you off
You've achieved a lot single-handed
Fitted kitchens, bathrooms, showers
Rarely getting stranded.
So, ok you're not a professional
but without hesitation
You'll try your hand to anything.
And we so admire your determination.
D.I.Y. is quite a skill
and you'll always have go.
How you manage to break so much
Is something I'll never know!
Mad about Cooking
The Kitchen is rarely clean
It always looks an eyesore
There's saucepans on the boil
and flour on the floor.
It's not cause your a lazy git/girl
with a can't be bothered attitude.
It's not because cleaning is something you do
when only in the mood.
While the kitchen maybe an eye sore
It's the smells that are the teller. .
It's cause your always bloody cooking
Our very own Nigella!
You make cooking look so easy
as you effortlessly chop, dice and whisk
and you seem to know just what to add
to create a perfect dish.
Your pastry is perfection
Your cakes look just divine
Your Yorkshire Puds are massive
Your souffles are just sublime.
Cooking is your passion
And your cooking is a winner
So tell me please before I go -
When can I come for dinner?
Enthusiast - Keep Fit Themed Verse
You've always got your kit off
Wearing shorts and sleevless vest
And don't mind if I tell ya
this look . . It ain't your best.
But you tell me that it's what they wear
down at your local Gym
with the body building fella's
Working out and getting trim.
To the body beautiful cause
I applaud your dedication
But walking around have naked
please, keep it in moderation.
That is until your belly
Has shrunk to half it's size
and your pecks are bulging to almost
the same size as your thighs.
I couldn't resist the little dig
On this your (00) Birthday
Take the evening off, put your feet up
The Gym won't go away.
Craft Themed Verse
You're such a crafty person
Always on the go
Always working with something
Whether it's knit, crochet or sew.
You have all the tools required
to create the latest fashion.
You make most of it up as you go along
As needlecraft is your passion!
You've done Austrian and Roman blinds
Scatter cushions galore
Aran jumpers for the kids
and curtains for the door.
We've had beautiful framed cross stich
Pretty embroidered hankies too
Scarves, hats and gloves galore
And knitted covers for the loo.
The sewing machine is always up
running off the latest trend.
You run things up and take 'em in
Adjust them to make amend.
I so admire your creative mind
Keeping busy is your pull
Although I worry that one day
I'll find you buried under wool!
(Anyway Happy Birthday
Your (00) today
I'd send you a homemade birthday card
But wouldn't know where to start!)
Fly Fishing Themed Verse
Armpit high in rubber
Is how your free time's spent
Paddling about in water
You're remarkably content!
But it's not a strange weird fetish
That you are suffering with
The facts are even stranger -
It's the fact that you Fly Fish!
Evenings and weekends
Whenever you get a pass
You can be found down by the waterside
amongst the rushes and the grass.
You're tooled up with all fishing gear
Terrestrials, Streamers and Wet flies.
You use all the terminology
The wherefores and the whys.
Exaggeration is expected
As all fishermen do portray
Using their arms the size of their catch
and the one that got away!
But despite taking the mickey
of what Fly Fishing's about.
I am extremely partial
To a nice bit of rainbow trout.
So on this, your special day
Our love and best wishes take
Cause we know that the next opportunity
You'll be fishing down the lake!
Disney Themed Verse
You have a wicked DVD collection
Each one's a massive hit
You've personally met most of your favourites
and have photographs to show it.
You are completely enchanted
in the magic you get lost.
Every year you follow them somewhere
regardless of the cost.
A house full of memorabilia
like it's the latest of high fashion
But you so obviously love it
As Disney is your passion.
How many of you are old enough to remember the famous
Cricket Tea Towel explaing the rules of Cricket to a foreigner?
Well I remember and if it's acceptable the following verse is a new take on an old favourite.
Cricket Themed Verse
Cricket is a funny game
That much we know is true
The teams can play in their pyjamas and the rules -
take a bit of getting used to.
Two sides play - that's normal
One side is out, one's in.
The side that's in, is tried to get out
and each player got out, goes in!
This continues on until-
all the side that's in, is got out
Then they change over and do it all again.
Now what's that all about!
It gets even more confusing
As sometimes men are not out and still in
And once both sides have been in and got out
That we find out which side wins!
You're such a Cricket Fanatic
You watch, you listen and play
But for sure you won't get under any feet
As Cricket takes you out all day!
Street Dance Enthusiast
You’re a (boogie/body) popping Princess
