Ding dong! Ding dong!
friends coming over to my house
slam slam slam slam !
doors shutting and kids going to play
slurp, slurp, lick, lick,
children enjoying cold ice cream
SPLASH! SPLASH! SPLOOSH! SPLOOSH!
people jumping into pools
gulp, gulp, gulp, gulp,
everyone enjoys fresh cold water
children laughing and having FUN!
Sigh, sigh, breath, breath,
people and animals panting from the heat
Hooray! Hooray! Hoorah! Hoorah!
people and kids cheering for the SUMMER!
