Oh suitcases full of blue puppets, save me from the plight
of Little King. No, no uncle, I think it's milk. What what.

do it again, heh, ooh, ooh, slap me uncle bring me to my little
Feet, what's that rushes through me body thus? Why
It's blood rejoicing in the heart. Heck I've got blood in me
Body, why I'm a woman too, Little King, Little King, Little

Little King. Shot the moon with me broom, hey Micky take
That penny from the sky; the rains falling down just like
Little children racing back to mother.
