From the book The Aliens Have Landed at Our School!

I’m Stumblebum Stan, the Invisible Man.
How I love to draw pictures and paint.
I sell every sketch and the money they fetch
is so much you would probably faint.

I’m rather surprised, that my art is so prized
and I laugh all the way to the bank.
All the pictures I draw are exactly alike
because all I can draw is a blank.
