A Spot Of Tea

Cinderella took a break
to have a spot of tea
 
When a little birdie spake
as normal as can be
 
“I was just flying along
and spotted you down here
 
Could you sing me a song
if you’d be so dear?”
 
Which came as quite a shock
to Cinderella at the time
 
No that the bird did talk
but instead how he did rhyme
 
“I don’t want to seem dense
or anything of the such
 
Yet it doesn’t make any sense
to me all that much
 
Why would a song bird
want for me to sing
 
When a melody should be heard
in the tune you’re warbling?”
 
“Alas because I have no choice
for there’s a problem you see
 
I recently have lost my voice
and no warble’s left in me!”
 
As the birdie began to cry
Cinderella’s heart was broken
 
She said she’d give a try
then realized that he had spoken
 
“Now just wait one minute,
what’s this game you play?
 
If you’ve no voice in it
how did those words you say?”
 
Birdie then hung his head
and shook it to and fro
 
“Well the truth is,” he said,
“you won’t believe me I know!
 
But a wicked old witch has
cast a spell on me
 
And so a bonnie lass
must sing to set me free!”
 
“Oh you silly little thing
why didn’t you just say so
 
Of course for you I’ll sing
and back to yourself you’ll go!”
 
As Cinderella sang strong and clear
birdie became a prince no less
 
Who then said, “Marry me dear!”
 now Cinderella is his princess!
