SADIE THE SPAGPIE - LIKE MEL ALSO MYTHICAL
For the love of his life poor Melvin was longing,
You really can't say that the females were thronging.
We had heartfelt pleas from much (well 7) of the nation
To find him a mate to suit his creation.
Morag suggested he tried on-line dating,
She's sure that there must be a bird out there waiting
To meet him and love him and be his sweet honey,
So he tried it and found it was well worth the money.
It's Sadie, smart lady, Mel felt that arrow from Cupid,
Her Pa's a magpie, Ma's a spadger - that Cupid's not stupid.
Crimson beak, rosy cheeks and red varnished claws
Oh! what a surprise, she said 'Melvin, I'm yours'.
In the branch of an oak tree they built a sweet nest,
............ It would be indiscreet if I told you the rest!
(Spadger --- local term for a Sparrow, it's the name we always use)
