Watermelon Pie!
Adapted from Alligator Pie by Dennis Lee
From Watermelon Pie and Other Tunes! CD
by Sharon MacDonald

Watermelon Pie!
Watermelon Pie!
If I don't get some
I think I'm going to cry.
You can take away my shirt
And take away my tie,
But please don't take my
Watermelon Pie!

Alligator Cake!
Alligator Cake!
If I don't get some
I think I'm going to break.
You can take away my frog
And take away my snake,
But please don't take
My Alligator Cake!

Huckleberry Bread!
Huckleberry Bread!
If I don't get some
I think I'm going to bed.
You can take away my leg
And take away my head,
But please don't take
My Huckleberry Bread!

Snicker Doodle Torte!
Snicker Doodle Torte!
If I don't get some
I think I'm going to snort.
You can take away my Carl
And take away my Mort,
But please don't take
My Snicker Doodle Torte
