Bubble Gum Bees

There's birds in the trees
And the bubble gum bees
Are buzzing around my head.
So I jump up and down
And dance all around
And land on my head instead.

Oh picnics are fine
In the summertime
With the ants walking over my toes.
The jam and the jelly
And my peanut butter belly
With a moustache milk on my nose.

One day I'll grow up
Like my Coca-Cola cup
And bubble up over the rim.
Then I'll strut my stuff
Like a pretty cream puff
And go goo-goo eyes over him.

One day I'll grow up
Like my Coca-Cola cup
And bubble up over the top
Then I'll strut my stuff
And huff and puff
And be just like my pop.

There's birds in the trees
And the bubble gum bees
Are buzzing around my head.
So I jump up and down
And dance all around
And land on my head instead.
