Random Thoughts On Peter Cook (born this day, 17th November 1937

60s

Yeah

He used to wear

Italian suits

And Chelsea boots

Beyond the Fringing

E.L Wistying 

Establishmenting

Perfect genting

Satirising

Private Eyeing 

Cocking a snooting

Putting the boot in

Lenny Brucing 

Elegant & slim & thinning

Liked a glass of Gordon’s ginning

Bet he got an awful lot of what we might call nookie.

Who he?

Cookie


70s

A touch of wiz

A bot of fizz

A show of biz

Thriving striving

Judging jiving 

Snorting scoring

Obviously

Dudley Mooring

Never boring

Clive and Dereking

Has us roaring

Then some moring

Till our sides

Were sore and soaring

Sorer than some school kid who got whipped for playing hooky

Who he?

Cookie


80s/90s

Years of bliss

With wife and kids

And cannabis

And getting pissed

What’s wrong with this?

The choice was his

Greebling

Streebling

Svenning

Skiving

Ducking diving

And imbibing

Anderson Cliving

He was fucking fab

And trying

Now in Hampstead grave

He’s lying

No denying

This is filthy rotten swizz

He’s missed and missed and missed and missed

By me

By you

By Auntie Pru

By barman

Broad

And bookie

Who he? 

Cookie
