Excuse me, I’ve brought these roses back -
They’re past their smell-by date.
And this bag of mussels in white wine sauce -
They’ve passed their shell-by date.
This book of stories about the Mister Men
Has passed its tell-by date.
This plastic Harry Potter wand
Has passed its spell-by date.
And these slug pellets really are rubbish -
They’ve passed their repel-by date
And as for this laxative chocolate -
It’s past its expel-by date.
These tablets don’t seem to be working -
I’m well past my well-by date.
And do you sell Viagra?
I’m past my swell-by date.
