In the face of the incomprehensible...


Ben - The Reprise
(With very minor apologies to Messrs Jackson)

Ben, your children have become a choreClick to expand
Contraception you and yours abhor
Just for feed I'll need a loan
They won't leave me bone
Even mother does agree
To set a trap or three
(To set a trap or three)

Ben, they scuttle o'er both chair and stair
Soon I may give into the despair
Tho' not naturally inclined
You must think that I've gone blind
The cat's decamped you know
It's time to hire a pro
(It's time to hire a pro)

I used to say "you and me"
Now it's one plus sixty-three
I used to say "you and me"
Now I make my final plea

Ben, exterminators don't delay
Not much time to make your getaway
So, bid me a fond adieu
I surely loved you true
Yet I have prayed, "Amen"
To be rid of my friend Ben
(A friend) Like Ben
(Like Ben) Like Ben
