Dear Tommy TJhere's a nice little girl visiting us
And I built a skipping-rope machine like this for her.
It worked like a charm, and she was happy

Until it speeded faster than she could jump.
I tried to help her, but we both got caught.
Of course, we were not hurt, but it was embarrassing. Yours, Willie.
