The Butterfly Box continued
Grandma Cafarri Grandma Cafarri Drives a Ferrari And she just turned one hundred and two! Her hearing is sorry Her vision is blurry But she can drive faster than you! She's not always sure where she's going, She's not always sure where she's been. But she puts her foot to the pedal, And before the dust settles She's gone and been back again! So if you ever run into my Grandma, You'd be best to just stay behind. Since she stopped seeing those lines... So long ago... She takes any old lane she can find!
I asked my Mom for a special treat, And she brought me a Chipwhich surprise. I said this doesn't look very special to me, Then it sat up and opened it's eyes! I had been looking for something special to eat, But this thing on my plate was alive! And although I thought my surprise was complete, I was shocked when it next took a dive. My treat was now running straight for the door, And I thought, "This is too much work for a snack!" So I asked my mother if she had anymore, But she said, "No, go get that one back." By now it was rolling right down the stairs, So fast that I couldn't keep up. I shouted out that he should take care, For he was headed into the mouth of my pup! If he heard me at all, he showed not a sign, And kept rolling as fast as he could. Now I knew that this snack would never be mine But boy, my pup sure thought it was good!
More Jumping Beans Oh giggles and screams I've got jumping beans Sitting right here in my plate! They're moving around They'll be hard to get down Oh gee, isn't this great! The fault lies with me Clearly you'll see For I told my Mom plainly last week I was tired and bored With the same old accord And a new side dish she really should seek! But now I see I'd be more than happy With salad or pasta or rice Because anything still Most certainly will Be more than just dandy and nice!
