Don't do, don't do, don't do that! Don't pull faces, don't tease the cat, don't pick your ears, euugh! Don't be rude at school! Who do they think I am? Some kind of fool? One day, they'll say: "Don't put toffee, in my coffee; don't pour gravy, on the baby; don't put beer, in his ear and don't stick your toes, up your nose; don't put confetti, on your spaghetti and don't squash peas, on your knees; don't put ants, in your pants; don't put mustard, in your custard; don't chuck jelly, at the telly and don't throw fruit at a computer. [click] Don't throw fruit at a computer." Then what "Don't throw fruit at a computer" Then what- "Don't throw fruit at a computer." Who do they think I am? Some kind of fool?
