My mom sent me to the store For eggs, coffee and more Instead of going straight there with the list A temptation turned up that I could not resist I made a beeline for the park And hung out with my friends until dark By the time I realized what had happened The store was closed. I was saddened Guys! Please help me concoct a story That will diffuse my mother's fury What if you were kidnapped - by a giant with a hairy back What if you fell in a ditch - under a spell by an evil witch What if you got lost - returned by a blue and white horse What if we tell her you died - Then angels came down and cried Bringing you back alive. Miracle verified We can explain the time loss - with an alien abduction of course Bye. I'm just going to go home. And face my mom alone
"Sam! Where have you been?" "I was trapped in a cotton gin." "Seriously. Where were you?" "Aliens took me to Kathmandu." "You know your sister saw you in the park?" "I hitched a ride back on an aardvark."
