A Cat Tale

By Vicky Manning

 

(Tune of Oh my Darling Clementine)

On a fence

In October

Sat a lonely black cat.

He was looking for dinner

Wishing for a large grey rat.

 

In a hole

In October

Sat a hungry grey rat.

He was looking for dinner

But instead he found a cat.

 

On the ground

In October

Stood a rat and cat.

One got what he wished for

And I’ll leave it at that!

Acorn Man

Tune of “Oh Do You Know The Muffin Man”

By Vicky Manning

 

Oh do you know the acorn man,

The acorn man, the acorn man.

Oh do you know the acorn man,

He lives on an oak tree.

 

Oh do you know the acorn man,

The acorn man, the acorn man.

Oh do you know the acorn man,

He’s fallen from the tree.

 

Oh do you know the acorn man,

The acorn man, the acorn man.

Oh do you know the acorn man,

He hides under the leaves.

 

Oh do you know the acorn man,

The acorn man, the acorn man.

Oh do you know the acorn man,

Acorn man Freeze! (whisper, “It’s a squirrels, shh)

 

Oh do you know the acorn man,

The acorn man, the acorn man.

Oh do you know the acorn man,

Who once lived under the trees!

POEM

 

Bogie Eyes

By Vicky Manning

 

Walking through the cave I saw bogie eyes.

Incredibly, hugely, crazy bogie eyes, bogie eyes.

Running through the forest I saw bogie eyes.

Incredibly, hugely, crazy bogie eyes, bogie eyes.

Swimming in the ocean I saw bogie eyes.

Incredibly, hugely, crazy bogie eyes, bogie eyes.

Crawling through a tunnel I saw bogie eyes.

Incredibly, hugely, crazy bogie eyes, bogie eyes.

Peeking in my closet I saw bogie eyes.

Incredibly, hugely, crazy bogie eyes, bogie eyes.

Closing my eyes, I see bogie eyes and they…

Saw me! Them bogie eyes!
