So, talking of THE CURLY BITS.
Some want them in their hair;
It sends them into hissy fits
When they find them elsewhere!
On heads where curly bits abound,
The owners want them out,
But where straight tresses may be found
They then want curls, no doubt!
But even when the hair is straight,
Some curly bits may be
In places where they would create
Great shock for one to see!
A curly bit one may applaud
Is for uncorking wine –
One screws, and yanks, and the reward
Is fine for when you dine!
On pigs, the curly bits one finds,
With a most twisty bend,
Located on their fat behinds –
In fact, right at
In Goo-guggling for inspiration, I came across an Australian composer I have never heard of before, Sean O’Boyle, and was enchanted with some of the clips. His Scottish Rhapsody is lovely, even if it does wind up with ‘Waltzing Matilda’. Anyway, here is the link to his Curly Bits for horn and orchestra. Great fun.

P.S. Oops, sorry sidey, I forgot to mention that these twiddly chunks are all in response to this weekend’s side view theme of Curly Bits!
Waltzing Mathilda was written in 1895, and has long been such a popular tune you shouldn’t pull up your nose at it, Col! Btw, your hair poem couldn’t be more true. 😆
I’m not knocking Waltzing Matilda, but I don’t really think it should feature in a Scottish Rhapsody!
I love the curly bits at the end of piglets 🙂
They do the corkscrew ending well, don’t they?
indeed curly words these are!
Taken a bad turn, have they?
