Debonair Darren Herron

DARREN THE HERRON1

Debonair Darren the Heron,
with trendy touch of guile
and his Mohawk hair a flarin’,
has vaudevillian style
that is so completely darin’,
it’s bound to break a smile
on any bloke who’s been starin’
at antics aired awhile.

As he gets his toes a tappin’,
his motions entertain.
With his wayward wings a flappin’,
his dance moves are insane.
He might even break out rappin’
an avian refrain,
when the Heron calls are crackin’
and rockin’ round the lane.

He looks so very debonair,
dressed in fluffy feathers,
the ladies love his racy hair
at their get-togethers.
He snares them where his fashion flair
and sassy endeavors
will sway them with his stylish airs,
promisin’ whenevers.

Debonair Darren the Heron,
with trendy touch of guile
and his Mohawk hair a flarin’,
has vaudevillian style.

Debonair Darren the Heron,
you’re such a sight to see
a bonafide bird performin’-
a Bieber wannabe.
