AnElephantCant help being confused
As he encounters all these strange places and names
Not just in Provence
But all over France
Starting way up north with Laon and Reims
He sets off on a marathon TGV journey
Near Besançon he meets a pretty mademoiselle
She gets off at Macon
Before hopping back on
And going all the way through Clermont-Ferrand to La Rochelle
He tastes the wine in Chalons-en-Champagne
Stays in Bois-Guillaume for a week or so
Then finds his way
And sashays down through Pau and over to Bordeaux
He quickly gets the point in Bayonne*
Discovers that is way too hot for him in Dijon
Says Ooh la la
When he weighs in at Troyes*
And sees through the eye of the tiger in Lyon
He is cavalier in Cavalaire
In St Tropez with BB he’s even sillier
Yesterday spends too long
In Hyères* and Toulon
Makes a phone call to Bandol from Montpellier
He meets an outstanding Allemand in Chateaubriant
And une tres jolie Suisse in Cassis
Now he says goodbye
To Marcel from Marseille
And his lovely niece Denise who all too obviously hails from Nice
*Hyères – Homophone of hier, French for yesterday, so this is a bi-lingual pun – pretty cool, huh!
*Bayonne – Home of the bayonet
*Troyes – Gave its name to the system of Troy weights for precious metals and stones
You have travelled a lot through France and I do recognise some places. I do love France too and have travelled there. Love your word- games.
This was not an optimum journey, of course!
Just an excuse to play games – with place names.
One more bad rhyme, but not for the last time.
Thanks, Ute, stay cute.
Witty and clever, Your words are a feast of adventure and fun!! 🙂 xo
Aw shucks, honey, you are only saying that ‘cos it’s true!
But thank you, my little blonde chum, your compliments make AnElephant happy.
That really is a cool two language pun! Lovely trip around La Belle France 🙂
AnElephant has to admit he did enjoy it!
Glad you like, mesbelleschoses.
And happy to see you back again.
AnElephantCant help but make jealous.
Next time why not come along?
AnElephant has room on his back for a wee book.
I’d like that!
AnElephant has done it again
He has made a post that is fun
Meeting people by chance
All over France
and then creating a cool pun
AnElephantCant argue with Al
He admits he is awfully punny
He has ambled around
And guess what he found
He really is the only one who is funny
