Our friend, Bob The Bun,

just loved to have fun

and exciting adventures galore,

he’d laugh all day

and jump and play

and roll around on the floor.


Its a very rare sight

to see a bun take flight

but one day he went flying so high,

he held onto a kite

by the tail, so he might

get to see the world from the sky.


Now, whilst he was high,

something low caught his eye

in the glint of the afternoon sun,

if he wasn’t mistaken

he’d spotted a maiden

a sweet looking little fruit scone.


His heart did a flip

and he started to slip

down the tail to the very last bit,

he shouted till hoarse

to his friend, Buttered Toast,

to reel him back in and be quick.


When his feet hit the ground

he was looking around

to find the fresh fruit of his dreams,

and there she was sat

with her frilly white hat

on a bench at the edge of the stream.


Bob started to run

in the warm summer sun

for his heart he just could not deny,

she looked all demure

and he wasn’t quite sure

but then he saw the twinkle in her eye.


Her arms opened wide

and he joyfully cried

as he fell into her crumbly embrace,

they danced in a circle

till she started to chuckle

tears of joy running down her sweet face.


It wasn’t very long

before the church bells bonged

and he smiled at his sweet blushing bride,

he took her in his arms

and with all of his charms

said, “I do!” with heart-warming pride.


The townsfolk clapped

as they walked down the path

with a spring in their steps to the park,

where their friend, Buttered Toast,

was snoozing against a post

with a kite made for two, what a lark!


What a glorious day

they all had as they played

and sang to Mr and Mrs Bun,

flying high in the breeze

over tall swaying trees

where the light of their love had begun.


They can often now be seen

hand in hand on the green

as their children play on the swings,

Angel Cake having fun

with her brother, Rock Bun,

their adorable sweet little twins.
