As originally devised, these short verses were about specific people, but have also extended to place-names, titles etc..

Oh hail Joanna Lumley
As Purdey she was comely
In Ab Fab made hilarity
Then wielded her kukri.

He galloped, The Lone Ranger,
Would always save a stranger,
He got there pronto,
with his mate Tonto.

Prolific Alfred Hitchcock
Oh,how he could craft to shock
Then shrugging on with small remorse
Sprayed Janet Leigh with chocolate sauce.

Don't confuse with Charles Manson,
The lovely Esther Rantzen,
Who has protruding teeth,
Which are beyond belief.

Sale of the Century made his name
Just a minute sealed his fame
Ready to marshal all his chums
Our lovely Nicholas Parsons

He was a real matey,
The presenter Derek Batey,
Bickering couples in the know,
On Mr & Mrs, his show.

Yuri Geller bent some forks
Then poor Jacko's memory stalks
From his scams made loads of cash
It's enough to give old Q a rash.

Maggie Thatcher,
Milk Snatcher,
I hated her for the miner's strike,
And wished she'd got on her bike.

Oh lovely yellow rubber ducky
Tonight you'll be so very lucky
Waiting for my bath to fill
So you can have your watery thrill
