Showman - Compose a Song

In Cub Scouts, we like to sing fun songs, especially songs about Cub Scouting or something gross or fun. We can even make our own NEW song. We don't have to write a new tune though. We can use a tune from a song we know, like "3 Blind Mice." It's an easy tune to remember and an easy tune to sing. Here's one example:

Road Kill Stew
(tune: Three Blind Mice)
Road Kill stew,
Road Kill stew,
Tastes so good,
Just like it should.
You go on down to the Interstate
You wait for the critter to meet its fate.
You take it home and you make it great!
Road Kill stew,
Road Kill stew.

Now, YOU compose a song. First think of something that seems funny, but not insulting. Pick some words that rhyme so you can put them as the last word in pairs of lines. Some examples:

wise - eyes shirt - dirt cake - mistake
lad - bad - sad - mad shred - head snow - blow
boys - toys - noise scout - shout - snout quiver - shiver
grain - plain song - strong - long cub - shrub - stub
sky - fly - tie - pie wave - brave air - there - share
tree - free - three - me    

Three Blind Mice

Three blind mice.
Three blind mice.
See how they run
See how they run

They all run after the farmer's wife.
She cut off their tails with a carving knife.
Did you ever see such a sight in your life?
As three blind mice,
Three blind mice.
