If Grandma’s in Montana
And Grandpa’s in Sioux Falls
And Sweet Aunt Lil’s
At Uncle Phil’s,
Or was it Uncle Paul’s?

If Mom is in Moldova,
And Dad went down to Dover,
Irene flew Ben
To Ireland
To find a four-leaf clover . . .

Miss Sippy headed southeast,
Miss Surry left home too.
The Hansen clan
Got in their van
And drove to Kalamazoo . . .

If everyone is elsewhere
I guess I’m out of luck.
It seems it’s clear
Why no one’s here
To hear me shout . . . “I’M STUCK!!!”
