Anna I said, “Orange-a gonna get it down forra me?
Tha copper he green a ver bigga wide green
And he say, where everybody can-a hear heem,
You-a violet da law, and-a you gotta pay
So I plum climb-a dat biga oak tree, straight away.
I taupe to myself, “don’t-a you fall out-a diss tree.”
So I mauve ver careful and–a I  get where I see
I can peach-a an acorn an-a knock-a it loose
But–a I miss anna I miss, and my face, she turn-a puce.
Wow, I amma maize at-a what happen then,
Tha wind, she rose-a up and-a she blue again.
If-a olive to be a hundred, I’ll-a never forget
My pink-a ticket sail away fast-a, like a jet.
