When Jamie Smith was twenty three
He got stung by a bumble bee
On one arm and on one the knee
Emmie Jones standing on her soap box
Talking of hunting the common fox
Got badly hit by a core from a Cox
Mavis Smith of canning town
Was trying on a wedding gown
When a bus knocked her down
The driver was one Jimmie Lee
Who also kept three hives of bees
And chopped down apple trees
All happened on the same date!
All of them were running late!
Coincidence or cruel cruel fate?
Thirty seven years after these events
All were counselled for accidents.
