Few too many

There was an old Juval, who lived in a Vardo, down the end of the lane.
She had so many Chavvies she couldn’t remember their names,
Some had gone Hawking and some had gone coursing
Some were just Chinning a tree
Some were eating and some were sleeping
And six of them were sat on her knee.

A Few Too Many

Romani words

  • Juval – woman
  • Chavvies – children 
  • Chinning – climbing
