Sooty the Window Cleaner

AKA: SOOTY

We have this window cleaner you see,
Who’s had more wives than he has had cups of tea!
He has seen many sights behind that glass,
“OOH Sorry Ma’am, I saw your bits, but hey what an ass
Er I meant hey what class!”

His equipment is an aluminium ladder,
Fitted with a Sony Digital camera on his top rung!
He’s only done this so he can have that bit of extra fun!
Seeing all those beautiful ladies makes him make mistakes!
He falls off his ladder quite often, because of his shakes!

We’re not sure whether this is a health condition,
Or just a horizontal viewing adjustment on his glasses,
Or his glasses have steamed up too much I’ll be bound!

You tell him about his oval cleaning,
But he pays no attention, He says he works “For Cunard!”
Maybe he does, but our windows are square, not round!

His favorite saying to the ladies is “will you marry me”
He’s always cheerful you know (well I’m not surprised!!)
What with the views he has, and its not just the blue skies!

We know your now getting old dear Sooty and very slow,
Your trusty stead gets a ticket and your told to move along!
But for once, please climb that extra rung before you go,
So the bloody corners will be done!
