We’ve many creatures in our school
That roam around all day.
We’ve tried to think of everything
To drive them all away.
The bookworm’s very well behaved,
But we think that he is boring,
So we’ll leave him, his head in book
To gently go on gnawing.
The copycat is such a pest!
Let’s chase him out of sight.
He uses his good eyesight to
Copy things we write.
The computer mouse is busily
Working on the table.
The copycat would jump on him
And eat him, if he’s able.
Be careful with that spelling bee
For when he comes along,
He has the knack of stinging folk
Who get their spellings wrong.
Now tell me, then, what do you think
That we might have for lunch?
It’s a hot dog with a salad dish,
So that dog we can crunch.
