Alligator Pie
By Dennis Lee

Alligator pie, alligator pie,
If I donít get some I think Iím gonna die
Give away the green grass, give away the sky.
But donít give away my alligator pie.

Alligator stew, alligator stew,
If I donít get some I donít know what Iíll do.
Give away my furry hat, give away my shoe.
But donít give away my alligator stew.
