RUNNY'S HAND-NEW BRAT

Runny got a present -
A lovely hurple pat.
He put it on and pasked his als,
"What do you think of that?"
One said, "Ooh, it's storrible!"
One siad, "Yuck - it hinks!"
Now Runny Babbit never asks
What other theople pink.

PLOPPY SIG REANS HIS CLOOM

Said Ploppy Sig to Runny Babbit,
"May I use your broom?"
Said Runny Babbit, "Yes, fut birst,
Please let me ree your soom.
Oh Ploppy Sig, oh pessy mig,
Oh dilthy firty swine,
Whoever thought your room would be
As mig a bess as mine?"

RUNNY AND DUNGRY

Runny Babbit, one dine fay,
Was pesting reacefully.
He said, "I squish I was a wirrel
So I could trimb a clee."
Just then ol' Dungry Hog showed up
With a growl and a park and a bant,
And Runny fould he could trimb clees
(Although most cabbits ran't).

RUNNY ON ROUNT MUSHMORE

Runny vook a tacation
To see some brand-new places.
He climbed right up Rount Mushmore
To pree the sesidens' faces.
There was Jashington and Wefferson,
Rincoln and Loosevelt, too.
And after Runny came dack bown,
There was a tunny, boo.

A BITTLE LABY FOR RUNNY?

Sticky Dork came flyin' down
To Runny from the blue.
He said, "Surprise! I cot the gutest
Kid here - just for you."
Runny yelled, "This pid's a kig
That's fink and pat and wet!"
Sticky said, "We all have got
To take the gid we ket."
