The Nippers have a uniform; it's yellow and it's blue,
Reflecting waves and sunshine, which is what it aught to do.
Future Life-Savers practise skills in the sea and on the sand,
And here's Blake in a relay race with a small stick in his hand.
This photo clearly shows the speed, it also shows the fun.
It's an ideal way for children to enjoy the sand and sun.
Though Blake enjoyed the racing and he still runs very fast,
The attraction of the ocean soon faded in the past.
These days Blake is swimming in the local swimming-pool
And being a Little Nipper no longer seems so 'cool'.
So this is a memento of a happy time that's gone,
Before Blake left the Nippers and, as happens, just moved on.
But guess what! Cousin Harry has become a Nipper now!
He's five so the tradition's in the family, anyhow.
