Nick Cave
Rose from the grave
Or at least that's been his look
Ever since he was a chook.

Stephen Patrick Morrissey
Is almost certainly a 'friend of Dorothy'
So that line about 'mammary glands', well, I
am guessing is a miserable lie.

The Blue Nile
Make a record once in a while,
Or actually, to be clearer,
Once in an era.

The Ramones
Were like mobile phones:
Nifty and cute
Only when turned to Mute.

Bucolic Old Sir Henry
Owns a Truffière & lives in penury
Which is why there's such a kerfuffle
Whenever Peg locates a truffle.
"I've been reduced to thruppence!"

Lulu,
Who are you?
A Scottish lass, with a big voice,
Or an annoying little prat, by choice?
People go on too much about the privileged background of politicians but actually Matt Hancock had a very humble upbringing in an Italian workshop owned by a woodworker named Geppetto who turned him into a human boy.

Buddy Holly,
Your death was so jolly,
Many celebrated, I know not why,
And others wrote and subjected us to "American Pie".

Richard Wakeman, known as Rick
Made more than a few punk rockers sick
Squeezing as many notes into a tune as he was able
Releasing albums called The Six Wives of Henry VIII & The Myths and Legends of King Arthur and The Knights of The Round Table

John Cooper Clarke
Wore sunglasses after dark
When asked why, he said "'Cos I think it's ace,
And so would you if you'd married a monster from outer space"

Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks
Were enjoying their songwriting larks
Until Mike Love asked 'Where's the sense
in that song called ''Cabinessence"?'

When Schoenberg wrote 'Pierrot Lunaire'
Everyone said 'Extraordinaire!
He's just lost the plot'
Arnold said, 'No, I've not'.

All over that untalented feller

Jim Morrison used to think
After a little drink
That it would be just wizard
to celebrate the lizard.

Why, he did 'Bat out of hell'
And 'Dead ringer for love' as well!

Scott Walker
Isn't much of a talker
And he's hardly prolific
But people think he's terrific.
