Cat: I was strolling through the grass and what did I see?
A big red apple hanging from a tree.
I thought to myself, "That sure looks yummy.
I'd like to put that in my tummy."
I was getting hungry so what did I do?
I tried to reach the apple from atop an old canoe.
But that old canoe wasn't tied to the bay,
so that old canoe started floating away.
I was heading downstream when suddenly, bingo!
I saw the pink head of a feathery flamingo.
The flamingo was a bird, he was shaking with force (?).
Then, he flung me to the saddle of a horse.
I wanna eat that apple 'cause it looks yummy.
Now, the horsie was dancing and shaking his tush,
So I leapt even higher to the top of the roof.
Now, the apple was close, it was in my line of sight,
But I couldn't quite reach it so I jumped onto a kite.
Well, something happened, something frightening.
My kite got struck with a bolt of lightning.
I was flying through the air, wild and free.
And that's how I found myself on top of a tree.
Peg: First the canoe and second the flamingo,
Third was the horse who liked to sing-o.
Fourth was the roof and fifth was the kite.
Cat: That's how I got into the tree all right.
But there's one more thing, it's the saddest part to tell.
As I reached for the apple, it fell!
I was stuck in a tree with all my efforts wasted,
All for an apple that I never even tasted.
Peg: Earlier, an apple fell on my hat.
And I said, "I'd better give this to my old pal Cat."
Cat: Earlier, an apple fell on your hat.
Both: And you/I said, "I should give this to my old pal Cat."
