Pray Spare A Thought For Uncle Joe by Paddy Roberts

Pray spare a thought for Uncle Joe,

Who used to blow a piccolo.

One night he tried to play on it

A rather tricky twiddly bit:

It didn’t quite work out somehow,

For something made him sneeze, and now

The piccolo’s in Uncle Joe

And he’s in such a pickle-O.
