And sure enough one fateful day,
Disaster came the young lad's way.
When only twelve years old, he went
And stole a truck of wet cement.

Of course, being just twelve years of age,
He'd never read a single page
On how to drive upon the road
As detailed in the 'Highway Code'.

So down the highway Jimmy sped
Oblivious to all ahead,
Speeding recklessly he went.
With twenty ton of wet cement.

Alas poor Jim, he met his end
Negotiating a bend
But didn't feel a thing at all
When finally he struck that wall.

'Cos like an arrow from a bow
Jim left the dumpster truck below.
And as he flew, it crossed his mind...
'That concrete must be close behind!'

  Next morning policemen found the mound
Of rock-hard concrete on the ground
And from the very top there peeped
A pair of size six, plimsoled feet.

So children, don't be like young Jim
And promise you won't copy him.
'Cos Little Jimmy Tattersall,
Became... a hardened criminal.
