Chimney Sweep

Well the door to the fire box was open. I just had to go in there to see what was in there. It's my job to check efurrything out. It's a dirty job but someone has to do it. Getting ash smudgies on me just adds to my charm.

Efurryone sing along:

Chim chiminey
Chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-ee!
A sweep is as lucky
As lucky can be

Chim chiminey
Chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-oo!
Good luck will rub off when
I shake 'ands with you
Or blow me a kiss
And that's lucky too

Now as the ladder of life
'As been strung
You may think a sweep's
On the bottommost rung

Though I spends me time
In the ashes and soot
In this 'ole wide world
There's no 'appier bloke

Up where the smoke is
All billered and curled
'Tween pavement and stars
Is the chimney sweep world

When the's 'ardly no day
Nor 'ardly no night
There's things 'alf in shadow
And 'alf way in light
On the roof tops of London
Coo, what a sight!

I choose me bristles with pride
Yes, I do
A broom for the shaft
And a broom for the flume

Though I'm covered with soot
From me 'ead to me toes
A sweep knows 'e's welcome
Wherever 'e goes

Chim chiminey
Chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-ee!
When you're with a sweep
You're in glad company

No where is there
A more 'appier crew
Than them wot sings
"Chim chim cher-ee
Chim cher-oo!"
On the chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-ee
Chim cher-oo!

Chim Chim Cheree

  6. We inspected the chimney last year, once, and then ran around sooting everything until Mom caught us and cleaned us up. She was a little peeved. And then she bought bit metal gate thingies to go in front of the fireplaces as she mumbled about Charcoal, Heather and Turtle never causing such problems. We don't know what she means. Heehee.

    We don't have a shimney, we live in an apartment.
    I like to jump in the cold box though. sometimes there are open cans of stinky goodness in there.

  13. well, ya gotta be careful about things like that. uncle eeker did that, too, the first year in this house and came back with his whiskers melted. the fire was going in the wood stove (which he had nefur seen before), but all he noticed was an open door, so up he jumped and perched on the threshhold for a squillionth of a second before dad grabbed him by the handle and hauled him backards.

    stopped that old bean's heart, nearabouts. he had been furry careful with the door cause he knew eekie and spotty had nefur seen a stove, but all it took was less than an eyeblink and that kitty was there. it even made dad cry because he was so scared and sorry!
