Hitched in Manly

Wayne Gagnon - Kangaroos

“Hitched in Manly”

by Wayne Gagnon
(for Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, Sunday and Faith)

A Sheila and Bloke…
…met in the States.
Each is a spunk…
…and a corker as mates!

That Sheila and Bloke…
…got hitched down in Manly.
Bend an elbow for love…
…and the start of a family.

Then came ankle biters…
…like lollies, so sweet
This mob from Down Under…
…now seems quite complete.

Aussie Glossary:

Ankle biters – kids, children
Bend an elbow – drink, toast
Bloke – man
Corker – a really good thing
Down Under – Australia and New Zealand
Hitched – married
Lollies – candy
Manly – suburb of Sidney
Mates – friends
Mob – family
Sheila – woman
Spunk – good looking person

Cats and Lights and Traffic

Wayne Gagnon - Cats and Lights and Traffic

“Lights and Traffic and a Cat”

by Wayne Gagnon
(for Eric D.)

Traffic and a loose cat…
…determine his fate.
Red lights and a feline…
…(are) making him late.

A loose cat and red lights…
…get in his way.
A feline and traffic…
…(the) bane of his day


Eric was late for work today.

Tori and Dean

Wayne Gagnon - Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott

“Tori & Dean”

by Wayne Gagnon
(for Tori Spelling, Dean McDermott,
Liam, Stella and Hattie)

Tori & Dean…
…and Liam makes three.
Mommy & Dad…
…as glad as can be.

Tori & Dean…
…and Stella makes four.
Daddy & Mom…
…have more to adore.

Tori & Dean…
…and Hattie makes five.
Mommy & Dad…
…are now sleep deprived.

Tori & Dean…
…and family (so great).
Daddy & Mom…
…have a VERY full plate.
