Ah explain to Uzzerr Muzzerr about Le Uncle and Monsieur Patterson

Even le old ‘airy Les girl make (as Muzzerr say) ‘le boys be’ave

‘Ahhhh’ sigh Monsieur Patterson. ‘Dose Golden Goils’.
‘They’re not golden’ yell Muzzerr.
‘I think you’ll find they are’ say Le Uncle.

‘Yes’ smirk Muzzerr, ‘Plain BEIGE’.
