My Blueberry Boat

I’m going to sea in a blueberry boat Using oars made of liquorice sticks, I have some spares hid in my hair Just in case I get into a fix, I brought peanut butter ("Why is that" someone uttered) Well I'll use it if I get any leaks, And if not instead, I'll spread it on bread To stick to the soles of my feet, I'll sail a while, at least for a mile And maybe a little bit more, Then when I get back, I'll have me a snack I'll nibble my boat on the shore!

Really fun Gary and peanut butter is a staple for me. I could survive almost anything of I had a jar of peanut butter. Best wishes in the contest
