Maggie May
goes to the moon


They jumped on her bed,
and they swung from her curtain.
She loudly yelled, "STOP!"
and her head started hurtin'.

Her toe ached, her arm throbbed.
She started to cry.
There was simply no way
that this room would still fly.

"Don't cry", said Oompah,
"We'll help you get back."
"We'll patch up your roof,
and we'll glue that big crack."

So they worked and they worked,
and they worked 'round the clock.
They worked for two days
and they never did stop.
