[IIg Them Tummy Gummers
How about Them Tummy Gummers,
Ain't they dummies?
Havin' they fun,
Gummin' them tummies.
Gummin' them paunches,
Outta they mind,
Runnin' 'round shoutin',
"It's Tummy Gummin' time!"
Look at Them Tummy Gummers,
Lurkin' in the yard,
Waitin' for a jelly-belly,
Catch it off guard.
Them hawn-yawkin' Tummy Gummers,
Ain't they dumbox?
Runnin' through the neighborhood
Gummin' them stomachs.
How to be a Tummy Gummer?
No way to shun it.
Grab an abdomen,
Roar off and gum it!
