First came the cave men in a disgrace
(guess what this performance is called)
With the bands and guns that are not toys
The place makes quiet a noise
smaller than the postcard pictures
the stage was once a car park!
this is not a fiction tale
don’t tell on on me if I fail
to describe the amazing sight.
there was no kite in the sight
but instead there weas a very naughty boy
doing his normal pranks
this boy was poking out his tongue to all of the officials
going by the name Denis in his normal stripy top
and in his usual menice too
that should have given you a clue
then the industreial world came
taking tap dances with them too
and then came the dancing litter
in there free flow dresses
then came in the top secret band with there very fast drum roll and there lighting up drums
after came the musketeer playing another drumrole
not as fast as before.
Half way through their well practiced performance,
they started fighting with their drumsticks while playing too!
Then in came all of them a Scottish band and more.
They made a big racket
much louder than before
the dancers and all of them came in.
to close the ceremony.
We had heard it rather clear.
That it finished with fireworks
coming from the lair!
The Edinburgh Tattoo had been a very good entertainer
