Copper on the corner
Eating apple pie,
I asked him for a skinny bit
And he hit me in the eye.

I went and told my mother,
My mother wouldn't come,
so I got a red hot poker
And stuck it up his bum.

A few words of explanation:

'Apple pie' is a popular dessert.
'Mother' is a female parent.
'Red hot' is the colour of a heated object between about 500 C and 820 C
