What is really meant by the expression – like water off a ducks back?
Or no, not that way you’re on the wrong track
Did you pick your nose when you were young?
This question was once asked of me
My reply to the questioner was, I was born with it don’t you see
I remember when I was young I was often told
Do what your bid don’t be so bold
But at a young age you still not have been educated
In the elements of right and wrong
Or have this explained to you – I’d sell you for a song
I so often heard the expression – keep your mouth shut when you’re chewing your food
Tell that dog to shut up barking
Neither of these expressions makes any sense to me
Nor this one – as far as the eye can see
What is this expression supposed to define?
Hurry up and take your time
Or don’t be there until your back
Hand me that wooden spoon till I give you a caning
Wouldn’t be tolerated by today’s youngsters
Don’t be scared of the dark – go to sleep now or the boogie man will get you
Too much sugar will rot your teeth –
If you’re good and finish your food you can have a sugary sweet
You ask your parents who are on there way out how long will you be?
Answer – how long is a piece of string
Is it any wonder children look at adults in total confusion?
Speaking of confusion – Here am I still searching for the” straw that broke the camels back” & that often searched for “needle in a hay stack”.
