A Coloured Lullaby

Here’s a little poem to make you cackle.  The slang is South African.  
Hush little laatjie don’t you cry, 

Daddy gonna steal you a GTI, 

and if that GTI don’t torque, 

Another GTI, I will stalk.

And if the stalking don’t go to well, ,

Daddy’s gonna steal you a Caravelle, 

And if that Caravelle can’t make tricks, 

Daddy’s gonna jack you a VR6, 

And if that VR6 won’t fly, 

Daddy’s gonna knock a BM from a Sandton guy.

And if that BM’s sound is kwaai, 

Da lenz cherries will go with you to elke braai,

And if the cops ask why?

Daddy will buy the docket from the police spy,

And if all these things still make you cry, 

then you not my laatjie , 

Your mom told me a lie…….
