Wanted: A Prime Minister For An Adorable Country

Jane and Michael Banks






If you want this choice position, have a cheery disposition

Rosy cheeks, no warts, play games, all sorts

You must be kind, you must be witty, very sweet and fairly pretty

Take us on outings, give us treats, sing songs, bring sweets

Never be cross or cruel, never give us castor oil or gruel

Love us as a son and daughter, and never smell of barley water

If you won’t scold and dominate us, we will never give you cause to hate us

We won’t hide your spectacles. so you can’t see

Put toads in your bed, or pepper in your tea

Hurry, leader! Many thanks.
