The Pancake Race


The St Anne’s Pancake race 2 -o ‘clock in the Chase

Outside the hut the contestants lined up

There was Ali Charlie and someone from the library

Running as fast as they could

Tossing there Pancakes high in the air,

And out of the blue came two kids pushing a pram

Then the race came out of the Chase and into the park

As the contestants raced past two large dogs started to bark,

Then into the lead came little Tom

We don’t know where he came from.

Wearing a chefs hat, and chequered pants

This race had turned into a merry old dance

The finish was near the crowd gave a cheer,

Home at last the winning post was here

I don’t know who won it could be Ali or Tom?
