Title: The Garden At Number Ten

(pre coalition)

Your Honour, Mr PM., sir,
I have got a yen
To come and be the gardener
Down at number ten.

I`m good with plants and clingers
And flowers, it is said,
And though I have green fingers
The lot`ll come up red

Tomatoes I will grow for you
Red-hot pokers,tall,
Red cabbage, red, red roses too,
All climbing up the wall.

Your runner beans should be a show
Especially when in bloom,
With carrots three feet long or so,
That`s if you have the room.

Your cyclamen, I`m sure will be
The best in Downing Street,
Won`t Madame be surprised to see
Red bluebells at her feet?

And when from number ten you`ve gone
When all your lot are through,
I`ll come and serve the other one
And change it all to blue.
