I’m standing by my cooker
Again to cook some food,
When all around me shrieks of
“I hate that, can’t you cook some toads?”
Well then, you’ve guessed
Just exactly what came next –
When all broke loose was
“Yuck, you do, and I’ll throw up?”
I tell you
Well that was far beyond my mind.
For laugh and breathe was just a dream
For want of breath.
For laugh we did and did soo well
That food was off our minds
Well, I ask you, really
Could you think of food instead?
Hear they come in twos and fours
Aleaping all we come.
“Don’t dare eat us, don’t you dare
Quick chaps, get out of here”
Said I with waving spoon.
“Eek, yuck, how could you dare
To think of such a thing?
Escape, go leap
Get out of here
Before my children come again.”
The motto of this story bodes
For parents all we know
Just be warned to cook your food
Before they all get home!
