Carnival

Party, Carnival, Happy, Beautiful Woman

I’ve never been on a Carnival cruise

With luxury cabins and

Captain’s-tables to schmooze

For when I first – went to sea

It was Marines’ compartments

And haze grey for me

Nor have I ever seen Carnival grand

With bright feathered costumes

And steel-drum bands

It’s travelling fairs and village fetes

That have till now

Been my fate

So what does “carnival’ mean to me?

I’m afraid it’s just a word

In the diction-ary
