My Giddy Aunt

“My giddy aunt”‘s a phrase some people use,
And I’ve the aunt I know they really mean.
If ever you’ve the chance to pick and choose,
The Aunt to choose is known as Buddy Green.

When we were small her Mini buzzed about,
She visited and always brought a smile.
There are some Aunts but I don’t have a doubt
My aunt’s THE Aunt that shows the greatest style.

I cannot think of her as everyday,
And can’t forget she came with Uncle Tim.
A house and garden where we loved to play,
Inside was hers outside belonged to him.

My sister’s now an aunt, and giddy too,
But not THE Aunt, there’s only one that’s true.
