The Twelve Days of Christmas

On the twelfth day of Christmas

My true loves sent to me

Twelve tappets chattering,

Eleven spokes a-rattling,

Ten cables fraying,

Nine joints with play in,

Eight hoses leaking,

Seven springs a-creaking,

Six perished plug-leads,

F i v e   o l d   r i n g s  –

Four cross-threaded bolts,

Three scuffed tyres,

Two worn wiper-blades,

And an old clapped-out battery.
