- I Walked Down The Street -

I walked down the street, as fast as I could run
The rain was pouring down, so I stayed in the sun
I passed a towering structure, no buildings were in sight
The sign post said, "Turn Left", so I turned to the right
A mother cat went passing by...all her puppies had red eyes
A man in a suit came up to me, his high heels clicking merrily
"Excuse me sir, I think I'm lost"
The smile on his face was very disraught
"I'm looking for a clothing store,
My telephone broke so I need a door"
I gave him the number of a doctor I knew,
Who made a living painting things "blue"
It made him so happy, he started to cry!
I wanted to leave, so I told him "Hi!"
I'm back at my home, but not for too long
My head really hurts,
I think something's wrong

- Bald-Headed Man -

The bald-headed man, with thick dark hair-
Went out one day for a swim in the air
The snow was throwing so much heat-
That penguins flew around his feet
He felt the sand slip through his toes,
As he slowly chewed his last red rose
He thought he saw some vampires sunning-
But that's not what it was - the Blues were running!

- Ice Cream Soup -

The ice-cream soup was frozen hot,
As I ate it with a fork
The lobster jumped around the pot
While sinking like a cork
The brown-eyed dog, with long blue eyes,
Tip-toed across the floor
The parakeet began to moo,
While I slept on the door.

- Pink Dog -

The pink dog flew across the lake,
As grass fell from the sky
The kids played jump-rope
with a snake,
While I pulled out my eye!

- The Beach -

The sun was shining brightly on a dark and gloomy day
The ocean water was too wet, so I went to the bay
The waves were really rolling in, the water was so still
There were no sand dunes on the beach, just some big sandy hills
A group of clams went running by, as fast as they could go
My nose hurt me and so I knew a crab had bit my toe
I thought the day would never end, it went by very fast
The sun is setting in the east, a new day's here at last!
