Money Man

Did sterling work throughout his life,
So forthright and so franc,
Ate dinar with a fork and knife,
Though marked down as a crank.

He had a yen for gambling,
A punt upon the horses,
Though lacking cents, he watched them ambling
Round and round racecourses.

He used to lira lot at Penny
[“Euro –nly young the once.”]
Got pounded by her boyfriend, Benny,
Who thought he was a ponce.

He tried to sing like Johnny Cash,
But couldn’t hit the notes,
So, for a change, he had a bash
Way up in John O’Groats.
