Johnny and the Mango
Johnny wouldn't eat his tea.
His mum had given him celery,
which Johnny didn't want, you see
all Johnny like was MANGO!
Johnny wouldn't eat his lunch.
His mum had given him Monster Munch,
but Johnny wanted a bowl of punch
made with lots and lots of MANGO!
Johnny wouldn't eat his sandwich.
It had cheese and it had ham with
peanut butter and strawberry jam,
but Johnny wanted MANGO!
Now Johnny liked his mango.
It was his favourite fruit.
He liked it more than chocolate
and more than his pet newt.
He really liked his mango
and you might just start to laugh
when I tell you where he ate it:
he ate it in the bath!
Johnn'y mum said "have a shower"
but Johnny gave an angry glower.
He wanted a bath at this wee hour
so he could eat his MANGO!
So Johnny got himself undressed.
He took off his socks, took off his vest
and went to the kitchen and made a mess,
looking for some MANGO!
Johnny went into the larder.
He reached on the shelf - harder! Harder!
He knew just what he was after:
he was trying to find a MANGO!
Johnny found a mango
and hid it from his mum.
He went into the bathroom
so he could have some fun.
He ran himself a nice hot bath,
now he was really free,
and he got into the water
and had MANGO for his tea!
