The only one I have committed to memory is (it isn't 9-9-6-6-9) 

There once was a lady from Exeter
And all the young men threw their sex at her
One day to be rude
She posed in the nude
And her parrot, a pervert, took pecks at her.

New version:

A once sober lady from Bali
Who hacked her forensics on Kali
Was surprisingly smitten
By some bug she was bitten
Hit the bottle like old Malcolm Lowry
