Speak When This Way Talk Do I
Buy the book My Dog Likes to Disco
Speak when this way talk do I
so, if converse do we,
you’ll talk to need to this way try
to talk with have a me.
It strange may somewhat first at sound
but for it try a bit.
It’s this way fun I’ve talk to found.
I’ve done my life all it.
It’s understand to hard know I
but and you’ll try it see.
If sideways talk you can to try,
it’s talk with fun to me.
