Greenfly and Thrips

Greenfly and Thrips

By Robert B. Martin Jr

Read my lips.

Greenfly and thrips
Greenfly and thrips
I do not like them
Read my lips.

Would you like them here or there?

I would not like them here or there
I would not like them anywhere.
I do not like greenfly and thrips
I do not like them, 
Read my lips.

Would you like them in your home?
Would you like them in your bloom?

I do not like them in my home.
I do not like them in my bloom.
I do not like them here or there
I do not like them anywhere
I do not like greenfly and thrips
I do not like them,
Read my lips.

Would they be fine in the bud?
Could you find them in the mud?

Not in the bud
Not in the mud
Not in my home
Not in my bloom.
I would not like them here or there
I would not like them anywhere
I do not like greenfly and thrips
I do not like them,
Read my lips.

You may like them. you will see.
You may like them in  a tree!

I would not, could not in a tree.
Not in my rose! You let me be.

I do not like them in in the bud.
I do not like them in the mud.
I do not like them in my home.
I do not like them in my bloom.
I do not like them here or there.
I do not like them anywhere.
I do not like greenfly and thrips.
I do not like them,
Read my lips.

You do not like greenfly and thrips?

I do not like them

Read my lips.
