Children's Songs

I went to Cincinnati and I walked
around the block
I walked right into a bakery shop
I bought three donuts and a pan
full of grease
And I hand the old lady a 5-cent piece
She looked at the nickel and she looked at me
She said this nickel is no good for me
There's a hole in the center and it's all the way through
And I said there's a hole in the center of your donut too!

A warm message comes your way,
Wishing you a happy day.
