The Ballad of Bill & Nancy
Bill Anderson, a fine young man,
A very dapper chappy,
Decided it was time to find
A mate to keep him happy.
He looked about and sure enough
His eyes soon fell on Nancy,
A bonnie lass she was indeed
And one that he could fancy.
Not only this, but people said
She was a lovely skater -
He bolted blades onto his shoes
To see if he could date her.
Well Bill was not so good on skates
But as he broke the ice
They laughed and chatted and she thought
That Bill seemed rather nice.
There was a happy ending and
They married two years later.
They're still together to this day
... and still he's not a skater.
