Hello there I'm Bimbo the clown
Do you want to make me dance?
Push my button down
Fa-la-la-la-la la-la la la

Body was found at the vicarage quarter past nine
People die from sudden strokes all the time
Verdict of misadventure mending the roof
The doctors niece
Whilst tending the rose hedge
Stung to death by a swarm of bees

My wife's cooking is out of this world take a bite
Died from some rare tropical disease in the night
Dab hand at pharmaceuticals, still no one guessed
The village vet
Was drowned in the pigswill
You wonder whose turn will be next

In the world of sinners
All are condemned
My son this gun's loaded
A missing floorboard
Then screaming from the belfry he fell
