Puzzle this……….I say to you.

Puzzle this……….What did you do?

Puzzle this……….and make a mess.

Puzzle this……….it’s a test.

Down the up………..and up the down.

Down the up………..go upside down.

Down the ship………back up the side.

Down the ship………and down the slide.

Silly me…………..I said too much.

Silly me…………..did you want lunch?

Silly me…………..does it make sense?

Silly me…………..sitting on a fence.

It does make sense….said I, said I.

It does make sense….to touch the sky.

It does make sense….to me right here.

It does make sense….to conquer fear.

Not I, Not I……….you silly goose.

Not I, Not I……….I’m not Dr. Suess.

Not I, Not I……….don’t you despair.

Not I, Not I……….I’m always here.

This That…

Who Cares?

Who Cares?

Who’s There?

T’is I, T’is I……..I have come today.

T’is I, T’is I……..I have come your way.

T’is I, T’is I……..I am clear.

T’is I, T’is I……..I am here.

My heart, My heart….cries out for you.

My heart, My heart….sings out a clue.

My heart, My heart….sings out once more.


My heart, My heart….is a metaphor.

So puzzle this……..I say once more.

So puzzle this……..then take the tour.

So puzzle this……..it does make sense.

So puzzle this……..for us on the fence.

Don’t want this…….is what you say?

Don’t want this…….what’s the delay?

Don’t want this…….I sing out loud.

Don’t want this…….I want a cloud.

Are you here……….for me today?

Are you here……….how long will you stay?

Are you here……….is it just a dream?

Are you here……….is life what it seems?

 

This that…

I heard.

I heard

Every word.
