I wonder if you would think of me then.
I thought I might sit there and think of Aunt Francis.
I thought I might think of her all night.
I miss her, since she left away over to Spain.

I wondered if, I would see Aunt Molis.
But Aunt Molis is Mo just fo’ sho’, a Po’ Mo’.
Aunt Molis, just gave me a good wish
on a dish for a fish and she was not my sis.

I thought I might see my uncle Mike.
But that Mike was not Magic so he could not come.
He was stuck way out in line up front.
He was stuck way up there with not a good chair.

He needed to get off of his right shoe.
It had gotten bugs on it and he thought it was through.
He thought there might be bugs in the dish.
But that dish was just fine. It was full of candy.
