Instead of hearing music, I eat it
Do, re, and mi are the sweetest so I put
Sprinkles on them, they taste
Like cake
Fa, so, la, and ti are tricky to cook
But done correctly they taste like
Mango liquado
Do. Do is the tastiest
Rarely caught but still good
Singing in the shower
Will lure them from
Catch them with a net
Just like butterflies
