Mean Penny O'Tool
Mean Penny O'Toole liked to pinch, scratch and lie
Johnny, her neighbor told the truth and hi-fived
Betty and Billy, the Twins down the way
Were planning a pool-party for their seventh birthday
"Who should we invite?" They asked their mommy
Mommy said, "you can invite Penny and Johnny?"
"Well, Johnny can come," the Twins both agreed
"But Penny cannot, 'cause she's just too mean."
Johnny and the Twins were all quite excited
Penny was cross that she wasn't invited
She got so angry that she kicked at a tree
Johnny stopped and asked, "gee, what's wrong Penny?"
Penny said, I'm mad because I am not going
To the pool-party that the Twins are throwing
Johnny said, "maybe they don't want you there
Because you're always punching and pulling their hair
If you changed your behaviors and were kind to the twins
I know that they'd like you and you could be friends."
Penny decided that she'd no longer lie
She would not hurt the Twins, making them cry
She would make them smile, giggle and laugh
She would make them think, "wow, that Penny's a gas."
Soon all the kids were quite fond of Penny
She played with the Twins and she played with Johnny
In fact, as the Twins next birthday arrived
Penny got an envelope with something inside
This was what she'd wanted all the while
And as the card opened she grew a big smile
It was a drawn invitation with balloons and a pool
It read, "you're invited, Sweet Penny O'Tool."
