The voice for it, sounded like humpback a whaleís mating
call it was said; how would they know I swam with whales
along the coast of Alaska in my younger days, only gave it up
when a flipper was damaged by a propeller
A school friend became a singer made money travelling
around fairs singing what was in the wind at the time.
He also sang in noisy restaurant with heavy Norwegian

I once met an English pop star, who looked like a Peter Pan
slightly frayed at the edges, he even had a vine-yard, he was

morally unforgiving now, so he went to live in Jamaica.
