Henry Otter had a girlfriend, Henrietta,
But his friends always laughed when they met her
'Cos they both looked just the same
And they also shared a name
Identical except for the odd letter.
Henrietta wasn't really that amused
In fact her self-esteem was badly bruised
And when Henry laughed as well
She thought, 'Oh, go to hell!'
So when marriage he proposed she just refused.
Poor Henry lost the love of Henrietta
And though he tried he just could not forget her
Now if Henry had one wish
It would be he were a fish
Then he'd be sure that she would like him better.
