Childhood
BAZONKA
by
Spike Milligan

Say 'Bazonka' every day 
That's what my grandma used to say 
It keeps at bay the Asian Flu' 
And both your elbows free from glue.
So say Bazonka every day 
That's what my grandma used to say 

Don't say it if your socks are dry! 
Or when the sun is in your eye!
Never say it in the dark 
The word you see emits a spark 
Only say it in the day 
That's what my grandma used to say 

Young Tiny Tim took her advice 
He said it once, he said it twice 
He said it till the day he died 
And even after that he tried
To say Bazonka! every day 
Just like my grandma used to say. 

Now folks around declare it's true 
That every night at half past two 
If you'll stand upon your head 
And shout Bazonka! from your bed 
You'll hear the word as clear as day 
Just like my grandma used to say!
The end
