Sister Dough read me a story under the tissue tree
It was hard to pay attention so I pretended to be asleep
Deep in the weeds the sky opened wide
And just like an eye it began to cry
Under the tissue tree I blew my nose for free
Under the tissue tree Sister Dough and me
In the middle of a big field we found the setting sun
And when we caught it in our butterfly net
It shot away like a gun deep in the stream
