You can't come over to play, today,
You can't come over at all.
For everyone knows how very fond
You are of your new soccer ball.
And my uncle the gym trainer's coming to town
Just to show off his toned upper thighs,
And when he catches sight of us sprawled on the ground,
He'll tell us we need exercise.
So of course you would think of your new soccer ball
And we'd start to kick it around.
As we did, it would smack, with a shatter and crack,
And the bowl and the fish would go down.
