Animated clip of Sherlock Holmes using magnifying glass
If you find you cannot hear
There‘s no need for you to fear
Do not ask your friends to shout
To tell you what they talk about

Admit you need a hearing aid
Get some help and get one made
Then learn to lip read, concentrate
Don‘t just sit and moan your fate

I‘ve joined a class and now I SEE
What people want to say to me
It isn‘t easy reading lips
But there are many useful tips

Forget the way you used to spell
Certain letters don‘t show well
Its not a case of P‘s and Q‘s
But rather shapes of Q‘s and ooze

Much of it is guesswork too
You‘ll be surprised what you can do
So join a class and persevere
Learn to SEE what you can hear
