Thanks to all for your limericks true
Heartfelt greetings from all of you.
You can tease, you can praise
And your glasses you raise.
but I’ll stick with coffee, the noo.
(for Ian Moore-Morrans)
It’s with joy, and with no trace of sorrow,
That, upon an occasion I borrow
From your family, I drink
This Scotch neat. And I think
You should add a new birthday tomorrow.
So here are the rest of Ian’s birthday limericks for your enjoyment:
Dear Ian, you’ve turned eighty-one.
Who says you’re too old to have fun?
We can sing, we’ll sip wines;
And we’ll both write some lines.
And that’s why I love you so, Hon!
From friend Nita:
Now we know that Ian’s Scottish.
As a dancer he was “hottish.”
He’d quick step; the girls would cling,
Then he’d do the Highland Fling.
But tell me, did he ever dance the Schottishe?
From our friend and accompanist Fernando:
Hey, Ian, I will play for you piano.
As long as in my ear you do not bellow.
Gayle has warned me, you sing loud.
When you entertain a crowd.
So go easy now, it’s better to sing mellow.
From Eric (a fellow Scotsman):
He wears a kilt
and sings wi’ a lilt.
He wears a tam
and likes a wee dram.
Now he and his lass
they are top class.
So sing for me
a tune that I luv
A song of my land
And that is “Misty Island.”
Life of Ian
First poverty, then military.
The young Scottish millwright did marry.
Lived all over Canuck land.
Chased Incas with Gayle in hand.
Now as author in Vernon he’ll tarry!
From Gail (and Bill):
A task I’ve been handed for Birthday Boy Ian
He’s the best Scotch drinker that I’ve ever se-en
He’ll top up that glass
While he calls for his lass.
If I got paid for this, it’d be pretty le-an!
There’s Ian the Birthday boy in the kilt
When you hear him talk, there’s a wee bit o’ lilt.
He does talk to the dog
Then falls asleep like a log.
It just must be the way he is built!
If a young Scotsman moved across an ocean
Would it be Ian and would he have a notion
To work really hard and sing when he could
Perhaps write a book and make it real good
Then later drink a Scotch whisky potion?
