"Black jack gum, a tootsie pop,"
I told the man in the candy shop,
"Atomic balls, a charleston shew,
And chocolate covered raisins too;
A quarter lb. of swedish fish,
Of cinnamon hearts and licorice.
I've lots of coins 'cause just today
I turned thirteen and got an A.
I mowed a lawn and lost a tooth-
Oh yes! And please, a Baby Ruth."
