I’m making some cookies while Mom’s at the show.
I’m making them perfectly round with this dough.
My dad is asleep and when he comes to life,
I’m sure that he’ll tell me I’ll make a good wife.
I used all the flour and sugar and peas
and tossed in some pickles and even some cheese.
I poured in molasses and pitched in some jam,
and after, decided to throw in some ham.
And now I’m excited just watching them bake.
They’re sure puffing up — and they’re starting to shake!
Oh dear! What’s the matter? Now what will I do?
They’re just like volcanoes — and spitting out goo!
I really can’t stand this! It just isn’t right!
These cookie volcanoes are really a sight!
There’s no doubt about it — my mom will be mad,
but the one in most trouble, I’ll bet, is my dad.
