Take a Stick of Spearmint -

Take a stick of spearmint
cross the sea to Ireland.
Forty shades of green you'll meet.
Patrick drove out green snakes
green shamrocks line the street.

Take a stick of spearmint
exchange it for key lime.
Voila! new gums are cool.
Taste the watermelon;
green apple makes me drool. 

Take a stick of spearmint
to Prince Edward Island
where even water's green.
Meet Anne of Green Gables,
hysterical colleen.

Take a stick of spearmint
off to the produce aisle.
Green beans will greet us there,
cucumber and Swiss chard,
papaya and the pear.
