We have our Bran Flakes at the table I have two bowls if I'm able “Can you pass the milk?” I say But he says “Pass my BMJ.”

When my dad comes home for tea He grumbles to my mum and me “Someone's tidied up today Have you seen my BMJ?”

On Fridays he will always say “Has the postman been today?” He'll search the mail and then he'll say “Did he bring my BMJ?”

He reads in bed, at meals too He always takes it to the loo “Daddy, I would like to play Put away your BMJ.”

I love it on our holiday We pack the car and go away And when we get there it's OK. They don't deliver BMJ!
