'Twas chips for tea and chips for lunch,
and chips for Sunday morning brunch,
and chips for breakfast with poached egg

Oh I am sad at their demise
and feel quite down and yet quite wise,
as on their tombstones I inscribed
‘they ate just one too many fries'

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
