And to think that I saw it at Trapp
School was over and
I looked in a class,
I stepped inside,
And all I noticed
beside my head
Was a ball on a ramp on a slide at Trapp
That’s nothing to tell,
That won’t do of course,
That’s only a start,
It went through a loop!
And the kids gave a whoop!
And that’s a story no one can beat
When I say I saw it at Trapp.
There is always still more.
Yes, the ball drops down,
Into a funnel that led to a tunnel,
Where it fell down a ramp and bumped a buddy,
There’s more that I saw at Trapp
The ball hits a ball with a string,
And then with a snap,
Such a strange thing,
Then a hot wheel was struck,
I saw it roll down,
I was really awestruck,
It crashed into a trap,
Once it went snap and pulled on a string,
The string yanked a card
Will nothing excite you or make your heart beat?
Than to know that….
I saw a Trapp Door,
Where a ball appeared
And goes down a slide
On a ramp not so wide,
That made it tight!
And to think I saw it at Trapp
It’s quick and looks smart
When the ball hits a coin,
Hold on a minute!
You’ll never believe it!
The ball hit a coin,
And the coin wound down a ramp
And rolled into a bank
Kerplunk and kahching
And to think I saw it at Trapp!
