I need a bungee
A good, springy bungee
A bright yellow bungee
To tie to my bunkbed.
I'll jump off the top bunk
And boing on my bungee,
And feel all the blood
Rushing straight to my head.

Please, mum - a bungee!
I don't want a slinky.
Can't you give Joanna
The slinky instead?
She'd quite like a slinky
To boing down the staircase,
But I need a bungee
To tie to my bed.
