Sunlight Soap You can use it with great pleasure and ease Without wasting any elbow grease; And when washing the most dirty clothes The sweat won't be dripping off your nose You can wash your clothes with little rubbing And without scarcely any scrubbing; And I tell you once again without any joke There's no soap can surpass Sunlight Soap; And believe me, charwomen one and all, I remain yours truly, the Poet McGonagall.
Having been paid the princely sum of two guineas for this effort, he was inspired to further efforts
Gentlemen you have my best wishes, and I hope That the poem I've written about Sunlight Soap Will cause a demand for it in every clime For I declare it to be superfine. And I hope before long , without any joke, You will require some more of my poems about Sunlight Soap. And in conclusion, gentlemen, I thank ye- William McGonagall, Poet, 48 Step Row, Dundee.
Unfortunately this effort was less successful, and they never used his poems again...
