					       Squirrely Shirley

        Squirrely Shirley
         lived in a tree
   where she hoarded her nuts
           so selfishly.

    No matter what happened
       she wouldn't share.
    Her nuts were her nuts and
        she just didn't care

      that Dilmont the deer
       and Harry the hare
      and Ronnie the robin
       and Benny the bear

      were hungry. As hungry
        as hungry could be.
Squirrely Shirley just watched them
       from high in her tree.

  She laughed while she popped
    each nut into her mouth,
while the others were searching for food
            north and south.

           Squirrely Shirley
             lived in a tree
           till she got so fat
         she could hardly see.

       Then one day she noticed
          an overlooked nut
         on the end of a twig
        and she wanted it, but

        She had gotten so heavy
        the branch broke in two
       and she fell to the ground;
     became squirrel and nut stew.

        Which just goes to show
        that it's not smart to be
          a selfish, fat squirrel
        when you live in a tree.
