  Don't do,
  Don't do,
  Don't do that.
  Don't pull faces,
  Don't tease the cat.

  Don't pick your ears,
  Don't be rude at school.
  Who do they think I am?

  Some kind of fool?

  One day

  Don't put toffee in my coffee
  don't pour gravy on the baby
  don't put beer in his ear
  don't stick your toes up his nose.

  Don't put confetti on the spaghetti
  and don't squash peas on your knees.

  Don't put ants in your pants
  don't put mustard in the custard
  don't chuck jelly at the telly
  and don't throw fruit at the computer
  don't throw fruit at the computer.

  Don't what?
  Don't throw fruit at the computer.
  Don't what?
  Don't throw fruit at the computer.
  Who do they think I am?
  Some kind of fool?

                 Make up your own list of “Don’t do”.
