I turned on my bedside light,
And saw to my surprise
A young woman’s pretty eyes,
Her name was White, or Wright.

Who never would wear any clothes,
Went for a job interview

When your hair ’twas not grey,

Wrote a poem upon a wall,

The police went straight round
But found only her hound,
Chewing on the Chief Constable’s slipper!
