fire! fire!

teeny tiny speckled spider 
   dangled from a tree 
and landed in my eye!

   swimming sprawling
struggling crawling 
   its way inside my eye!

biting chewing
   eating gnawing 
deep inside my eye!

   scratching tearing
stinging burning
   fire! fire! inside my eye!

teeny tiny speckled spider
   i'll rub and i'll rub
and i'll rub some more

   roll you round
smash you flat
   pluck your legs

and squish you DEAD!

   if I could just see to 
grab at you if I could just get
   my fingers on you!

teeny tiny speckled spider 
you're the match who crashed 
   the kerosene party--

GET OUT! GET OUT! GET OUT!
