Let’s have a little talk about tweetle beetles….
What do you know about tweetle beetles?
When tweetle beetles fight, it’s called a tweetle beetle battle.
And when they battle in a puddle, it’s a tweetle beetle puddle battle.
And when tweetle beetles battle with paddles in a puddle, they call it a tweetle beetle puddle paddle battle.
And when beetles battle beetles in a puddle paddle battle and the beetle battle puddle is a puddle in a bottle…
…They call this a tweetle beetle bottle puddle paddle battle muddle,
When beetles fight these battles in a bottle with their paddles and the bottle’s an a poodle and the poodle’s eating noodles…
…They call this a muddle puddle tweetle poodle beetle noodle bottle paddle battle,
Now wait a minute Mr. Socks Fox!
When a fox is in the bottle where the tweetle beetles battle with their paddles in a puddle on a noodle-eating poodle.
THIS is what they call…
…A tweetle beetle noodle poodle bottles paddled muddled duddled fuddled wuddled fox in socks, sir!
Fox in socks, our game us done, sir.
Thank you for a lot of fun, sir.
