Poet Don Explains Holy Moly to the Class



When I was just a boy at school

To show my great surprise

I called out ‘holy moly’

And opened wide my eyes



(blank looks all round….)
(I should be in adult education….)

The kiddies all love him


Explanation for parents

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Holy Moly (also spelled Holy Moley) is an exclamation of surprise that dates from at least 1892. It is most likely a minced oath, a cleaned-up version of a taboo phrase such as “Holy Moses”.
