Place a foot upon a pedal,

Put your pedal-pushers on;

To the pedal pin a paddle,

Paddle-pedal push upon.


Place the paddle-pedal-cycle

On a puddle in the park;

Paddle addled through the puddle,

Pump the pedal till it's dark.


On the puddle-pedal-paddler

Place a poodle with a pail:

Let the addled paddle-pedaller's

Puddle-poodle bail.
