I Gave The Poodle Bubble Gum


I gave the poodle bubblegum.
Shhh, don’t mention it to mum…

I gave the poodle bubblegum.
But now I’m feeling glum.

‘Cause there’s gum in her hair
And on the chair… and everywhere.

But that’s not the biggest trouble
With letting your poodle blow a bubble.

The real problem? Well, that would be…
Now she blows better bubbles than me.
