The worst sound you will know is, "Oh no!"
Oh no! ...the basement's flooded,
Oh no! ...the car won't start,
Oh no! ...we missed the airplane,
Oh no! ...it fell apart!
With urgent fear--disaster's near,
With pounding heart and nerves a-start,
What worse news can they show than, "Oh no!"
The worse thing you can hear Is, "Oh dear!"
It echoes in the ear, that "Oh dear!"
Grandpa's wandered off again,
Lillie's lost her new best friend,
I think we're out of beer, and the dinner guests are here,
Oh dear, Oh dear!
You sometimes say you've got a bone to pick,
Or something in your craw has come to stick,
My jaw then drops, my spirits flop,
The clock tick-tocks 'til the other shoe's dropped...
Basement, Grandpa, Lillie's friend,
A bone to pick, a craw to mend,
The dinner guests--(the grill ain't lit!)
Is there a bottom to this pit?
