The Little Pilgrim of the Night

 

                           1

When your little army corps

On your body forming fours

Always on a night attack

Making charges up your back

Then you shout with all your might

Strafe the Pilgrims of the Night

 

                           2

Though some hundreds you may kill

Stil youll find the is hundreds still

For they hide behind each other

And are smurt at taking cover

Then they have an awful bite

Such a shocking appetite

                         

                           3

There are families in the dozens

Uncles, Mothers, Sisters, Cousins

And they have those married quarters

Where they near there sons and daughters

Then they take a lot of catching

And they cause a lot of scratching

 

                           4

When your getting off to sleep

Then they are forming up two deep

When your in the land of nod

Then tey are forming up in squad

And yoursll find it most annoying

When the sutions start deploying


                             5

Then at last there comes a day

When you throw your shirt away

You would like to cast your trousers too

If they would only let you do

And adopt the ancient style

Of wearing nothing but a smile


here endeth the first lesson
