Whose living in my house?
Like that nursery rhyme we all know soooo well..
whose been sitting in my chair?..
whose been sleeping in my bed?..
whose been eating my porridge?..
We have a resident 'chuck.. chuck.. chucker!
He's come from Asia..
No paper work,
This little Gecko Fred is now a resident..
He enjoys a mosquito or two at night..
He keeps the spiders under control
and last night we heard him speaking to Sally outside!
chuck. chuck. chuck..
