I bought a pack of chewing gum,
last Thursday at the store.
And when I tried to take a piece,
you fell out on the floor.
I looked at you,
you looked at me,
As I began to drool.
I knew I couldn’t leave you there,
for it was time for school.
I scooped you up,
unwrapped you fast,
and popped you in to chew.
You seemed surprised and even shocked,
but then I thought you knew.
How much I love to chew on gum,
it gives me such a thrill.
For every time I’m offered some,
I’m certain that I will.
