Today's Special

1Well I guess that’s all locked up tight
2Says Sam who guards the mall at night.
3Sam’s a puppet! He can’t use his eyes.
4His body is an excellent disguise.
5I’m Muffy the Mouse! I’m condemned to rhyme
6Until the Christmas special end of time.
7That’s Jodi, my human friend.
8The world goes on and on and will not end
9Hiya there Jodi. Oh hi Sam.
10Jodi straightens Jeffrey’s magic tam.
11Everything’s safe here let’s go upstairs
12Sam says through a moustache Props repairs.
13Jodi is so pretty. I hate her.
14She carries Jeffrey up the escalator
15To the kid’s department every night
16Where he turns into space and starlight
17When I say the magic rhyme. Jeff’s a mannequin
18Until the mall goes dark. Then he’s a man again.
