Kiss Me Kate - Carefully. The Kangaroo

Poets often use many words
To say a simple thing.
It takes thought and time and rhyme
To make a poem sing.

With music and words I've been playing
For you, I have written a song.
To be sure that you'll know what I'm saying,
I'll translate as I go along...

Hum with me the tune
And let us play amid the Bush
Let us come together soon
To consummate our crush.

In other words,
Bounce my way.
In other words,
Share the hay.

Leave the billabong
And let me sing forever more.
You are all I long for,
As I take your tender paw.

Careful with those shapely legs
And watch when you get toey
Treat me like a tray of eggs
If you plan for us to joey.

Fill my heart with song,
And let it sing forever more.
You are all I long for,
All I worship and adore.

In other words,
Please be true.
In other words,
I love you...

Katie Kangaroo.

Just as I was starting to admire your romantic soul, I realised all that romance was showered on a kangaroo... well written ode to a long-eared lady.
A nice composition on the tune of 'Fly Me to the Moon'
Beautifully written Keith, And your not even an Aussie. Well done. Thank You
