Transcripts - Port Manteau
Port Manteau (port-man-too) A silly word poem
I got lost in Port ManteauSo I read the signs and map.I sounded out each weird new wordBut what good would that do achap?My guidebook said to be advisedThat visitors should be waryBut I did not take their good advice,Nor buy Port Manteau’s dictionary.
“What seems to be the matter dear?”Called the woman selling Foses.“Don’t you speak our language?”“No” I said “and should return before the station closes!”
“You’re not the first,” said the man and offered me a balloon.“You see, were proud Port Mantistsand mass up words to make them funner.It has us laughing all day long and keeps out all the borists!”
