Lyle the Lemon
Lyle the lemon turned eleven,
Time to celebrate!
He planned a party with his friends
His Mum said, “Just ask eight.”
Who would he ask? How would he choose?
The job was hard, for sure,
He thought he’d ask the apple twins
They’d make a solid core.
Gus Grapes – he was a bunch of fun
And Orange, always bright
Watermelon, kind and sweet
Three more left to invite.
Lyle stopped to think, he scratched his peel
Oh yes! His best friend Lime
They’d play some games and do the twist
And have a brilliant time.
Two left to join Lyle’s fruity crew
Two left to share his day.
Banana, she can do the splits
And shake things up. Hooray!
Mum asks, “How many have you got?”
Lyle counts and says, “just seven.”
“That’s find,” says Mum, “I’ll help you out,”
“You must ask cousin Kevin.”
“Oh yeah, thanks Mum. Well now I’m done.”
He wrote out ‘Kiwi Kevin,’
And that’s who came to celebrate
When Lyle turned eleven.
