The walrus and the carpenter
The sun was shining on the sea
Shining with all his might
He did his very best to make
the billows smooth and bright
And this was odd because it was
the middle of the night

Because she thought the sun
had no business to be there
After the day was done
Its very rude of him, she said
To come and spoil the fun
