  Merry go round the mulberry bush
Around the bush,
The burning bush.
Knot the twigs in catís cradles
To keep the mittens on.
Weave a web with tangles in
To keep them out,
To keep it tight,
Fill the holes with thickened lies
To make a solid sigh.
Look it up and look it down,
Not a crack can now be found.
Clap your hands and turn around,
The fat is in the fire.
