The Pliffploff

This is a song I wrote in January of 2021 about the curious beast known as a pliffploff.

The Pliffploff

The Pliffploff is a peculiar beast
a peculiar beast, a peculiar beast
Oh the Pliffploff is a peculiar beast
At least that's what I heard

It lives in teapots under hedges
and likes to dance along high ledges
It sings silly songs in the key of P
and is not a bird, a fish or a bee

It wears terrible ties and horrible hats
and tells tall tales to cunning cats
It likes to eat choclate and cheese
and wants to fly like the bees

The Pliffploff will borrow all your money
then pay you back in toast and honey
If you see a pliffploff be sure to smile
and then you'll be happy for a while

Here's a rough recording of this song:
