The Sugar-Plum Tree
Have you ever heard of the Sugar-Plum Tree?
'Tis a marvel of great renown!
It blooms on the shore of the Lollipop Sea
In the garden of Shut-Eye town;
The fruit that it bears is so wondrously sweet,
(As those who have tasted it say),
That good children have only to eat
Of that fruit to be happy next day.
When you've got to the tree, you would have a hard time
To capture the fruit which I sing;
The tree is so tall that no person can climb
To the boughs where the sugar-plums swing;
But up in that tree sits a chocolate cat,
And a gingerbread dog prowls below,
And this is the way you contrive to get at
Those sugar-plums tempting you so:
You say but the word to that gingerbread dog,
And he barks with such terrible zest
That the chocolate cat is at once all agog,
As her swelling proportions attest.
And the chocolate cat goes cavorting around
From this leafy limb unto that,
And the sugar-plums tumble, of course to the ground
Hurrah for that chocolate cat!
