It was a large lump, in the middle of the mud
It was a bump, just a lump, in the middle of the dump
It was fun for the kids, who leaped it with a jump
Some went around, it was a really large lump
A smaller, shorter child, tried to make it over too
But he bumped it on the top, he nudged it with his shoe
He stood up in the mud, and looked at it anew
He knocked off the mud, and it was plain to me and you.
He rubbed it with a hand, he knocked the dirt some more
To make the clean spot bigger, he rubbed it with his shirt
Soon the stripes were clear, as his arm began to hurt
In seconds everyone knew, it was time for some dessert
So we rolled it over and over, knocking dirt off with our hands
Watching the appearance of its wide green bands
We washed it with a hose, cleaning it of sand
Cut it into pieces, because eating it was grand!
