Granny cut off our credit at the store.
You were going to school
So we thought you could do anything.
We'll write a note, we decided
Joe can write.
We devised a long list.
Sam, four, said "Don't forget to
sign Bert's name."
So you did we thought.
Mrs. Lamb, the storekeeper, never let on.
Adjusting her glasses, she read that list
As though it were real writing:
"Does this say three Coca-Colas?
My eyes aren't too good."
Yes, we would answer until our shopping was done.
Of course, she called Granny
Our sins always found us out!
