I am twelve
This an't no lie
Go dig some gold
Then eat this pie

gum

How much randy enjoys candy nobody knows
His gum gum gum 
He blows blows blows
To a pattern of drum drum drum

He feasts upon it at a baseball game,
In school,
In the hall of fame,
And in the pool

He drives around a bend
He hasn't had any gain
But in the end
His jaw is in pain

Gum is like a fist clobbering his mouth
It is a pink pain giver
So he moved way south
Which made him shiver

jack and jill2

Jack and jill went up a hill to meet bill in the dark at the park and heard the hogs and 
dogs go bark at jack bice who is the nice rice guy who loves to cry over pie in the sky 
while he is about to die
