Walk With a Centipede

Took my centipede on a walk We were only going around the block And before long I knew I circled the block once, he twenty-two That centipede stepped on my toe Hurt so bad I had to slow Stepped on it not just once but again and again Not ten times but ten times ten After he trampled my big toe Couldn't take another step don't you know This is all he had to say "If you cant keep up, get out of the way"
