    Little Bunny Foo Foo went hopping through the forest,

    Then down came the Good Fairy, and she said:
    "Litte Bunny Foo Foo, I don't like to see you
    Scooping up the field mice and bopping them on the head.
    I will give you three chances to behave, and if you don't,
    I will come back and turn you into a GOON!"
    [Repeat two more times, counting down chances,
    and finally turning Little Bunny Foo Foo into a goon.]

    The Noble Duke of York
    The Noble Duke of York, he had 10,000 men;
    He marched them up the hill and then he marched them down again.
    For when you're up, you're up;
    And when you're down, you're down.
    And when you're only halfway up, you're neither up nor down.
