I've been watching it for days

Yes since I came back from the haze

Sniffing and snuffing below

This cunning little fellow


It had no fear at all

Meddling with other call

It did confront me, yes it did

That cunning little fellow


Croaking it crooked head in my direction

Eye ball to eye ball, he looked fearless

With it small sprouting mouth

I tried to rant it off, but it won't bulge


Then I saw the broom far off, calling me

I beckoned to it, it came

Snatched it million head, and rained on the fellow

It ran, so fast to it coven just above my head

Yes it ran, it ran, naughty little fellow.
