Concerto No 1 in E Major (Spring) Allegro by Antonio Vivaldi / Old Mother Hubbard by Ella Fitzgerald

Mike’s daughter: Hi kids, today it’s time for some “poetry”, which is our word of the day, and who better than to read out some for us is—

Mike Check: Yours truly, Mike Check?

Mike’s daughter: No. We actually have a special guest to do it for us. So please welcome, all the way from a country called England; here’s Sir Alec Heineken!

Sir Alec (*enters*): Why hello there chaps. It’s Sir Alec Heineken here today and I must apologize to you, young lady, about an incident that occurred the last time we met.

Mike’s daughter: Yes. Don’t worry about that, it turned out that you were possessed by STAN, so let’s just forget what you and your wife Ellie asked me to for money…

Mike Check: What was that there darlin’?

Mike’s daughter: Nothing dad, oh, I mean…I asked for some nice poetry, yes that’s right.

Sir Alec: Ohhhh, I love poetry, especially those of children’s nursery rhymes.  That is what I am here for today, to recite a nursery rhyme to your splendid listenership.

Mike’s daughter: So what’s your favorite nursery rhyme that you wish to read for us, Sir Alec?

Sir Alec: Oooohhhh, my favorite nursery rhyme is a classic known as “Old Mother Hubbard”, however, the version of the rhyme will be read “with a twist”.

Mike’s daughter: A twist?

Sir Alec: Yes. This version of “Old Mother Hubbard” was rewritten by a young American chap known as; Andrew Dice Clay, and I will recite it for you post haste:

(* “Canon in D Major” by Johann Pachelbel plays in the background*)

Old Mother Hubbard
Went to the cupboard,
To get her old dog a bone
She bent over,
Rover took over
She got a…

Sir Alec: The End.

[Crowd:] “Aww…we are so proud of you! Way to go! That’s what I’m talking about! Whoo!!!”

Mike’s daughter (*interrupts*): Okay, thanks for that Sir Alec. But the end of that poem may have to be edited out?

Mike Check: Well here’s something that’s perhaps more appropriate for the youngin’s there, it’s Ella Fitzgerald’s rendition of “Old Mother Hubbard” here on The NEW Mike Check Show!
