Speed Jump

I went downtown to meet Miss Brown
She gave me a nickel, I bought a pickle
The pickle was sour, I bought a flower
The flower was dead, I bought a bed
The bed was broke, I bought a rope
The rope was thin, I bought a pin
The pin was sharp, I bought a harp
and the harp began to sing.
High, low, medium,
Walky, talky, turn around pepper
