There’s something in my eye. If it’s dust, I think I’ll cry.

If it’s mud, I think I’ll scream. If it’s a fly, I hate this dream. If it’s a spider, it’ll tickle. If it’s dead, I’m in a pickle. If it’s a mouse, then I’ll yell “Scram!” But, If it’s deaf, I’m in a jam.

If it’s a fish, I’ll bawl right now. If it’s a horse, I’ll have a cow. If it’s a bee, I’ll grab its stinger.

Silly me, it’s just my finger.
