Cookie Snatching And Stealing


Eric Corsten

He's Cookie Snatcher and  he thinks it's  thrilling,

To steal all your cookies, then climb down your building.

He's got small hands that's why his milk keeps spilling.

He's a cookie snatcher without any feelings.

Why does cookie snatching seem so appealing?

I asked him that question ... his head hit the ceiling.

"For the love of cookies, that's why I'm stealing."

"Let's see if this truth has been far too revealing."

"I will eat them while sitting,standing or kneeling."

"I'll eat them anytime, that I get the feeling."

"I have got one problem, that I've been concealing."

"My hands are just too small for picking or peeling."

"My hands are way too small for milling or mealing."

"My poor hands are too small for pumping or wheeling."

"I don't know about you but I get the feeling,"

"My small hands are just right for snatching and stealing."

"Then why don't you try packing,hacking or healing?"

"And why don't you try picking,plucking or dealing?"

"Everything is big for you, I get the feeling."

"I guess that's why, you're cookie snatching and stealing."

"I suppose that I could try, roofing or sealing."

"And I guess I could try a thing called repealing."

"Please don't look down on me because I'm unfeeling."

"It's been a long day and my head is still reeling."

"Maybe it's today that I will get the feeling,"

" I'm not gonna go...cookie snatching and stealing."
