*If you want the higher quality pm me ur email* Jaalav and I came together tonight hoping to come out with another song like Just Now, except sweeter

But as things go, he played a Mexican riff as I recited a story out of a 100 year old book... Beatrix Potter is the Author and The Tal of Squirrel Nutkin is the tittle.

Lyrics? You betchya

This is a tale, about a tail
A tail that belonged to a little red squirrel
This little red squirrel, was named Nutkin
And he had a brother, called Twinkleberry
They lived in a wood at the edge of a lake
In the middle of the lake, there was an island
And amongst the trees stands a hollow oak-tree
With the house of an old owl, named Old Brown
One autumn when the nuts were ripe, the leaves on the hazel bushes were golden
Nutkin, and Twinkleberyy, other little squirrels came out of the woods
down to the edge of the lake, they made little rafts outof twigs, and then they paddle away
Over to the Owl Island, to gather each nuts. Each squirrel had a little sack and a large oar
They spread out his tail for a sail. They also took with them an offering, of three fat mice as a present, for the old Owl.
So then Twinkleberry and his little cousins, each made a low bow.
And said politley- "Old Mr. Brown, will you favour us with permission to gather nuts upon your island?"
But Nutkin was excessively impertinent in his manners: He bobbed up and down like a little red cherry, singing-"Riddle me, riddle me, rot-tot-tote! A little wee man, in a red coat! A staff in his hand and a stone in his throat; If you'll tell me this riddle, I'll give you a groat."
Now his riddle is as old as the hills;
Mr. Brown paid no attention whatever to Nutkin
So he shut his eyes obstinately and went to sleep.
The squirrels filled their little sacks with nuts, and sailed away home that evening
But the next morning, they all came back again. And Twinkleberry and the others
brought a fine fat mole, in front of his doorway and said-
"Mr. Brown, will you favour us with your gracious permission to gather some more nuts?"
But Mr. Nutkin, who had no respect, began to dance up and down, tickling old Mr. Brown
with a nettle, and singing- *clears throat*
"Old Mr. B! Riddle-me-ree Hitty Pitty within the wall, Hitty pitty without the wall; If you touch Hitty Pitty, Hitty Pitty will bite you!"
Mr. Brown woke up, suddenly carried the mole into his house. He shut the door in Nutkin's face
Presently a little thread of blue smoke from a wood fire came up from the top of the tree
BUT Nutkin peeped through the key-hole and sang-
and you know what he sang little boys and girls?
he sang this:
"A house full, a hole full! you cannot gather a bowlfull!"
"A house full, a hole full! you cannot gather a bowlfull!"
"A house full, a hole full! you cannot gather a bowlfull!"
"A house full, a hole full! you cannot gather a bowlfull!"
These squirells searched for nuts all over the island,
But nutkin gathered oak-apples--yellow and scarlet--and sat upon a beech-stump playing marbles!
And watching the door od Mr. Old Brown.
Now on the third say the squirrels got up early and went fishing
They paddled over the lake, and landed under the crooked chestnut tree
Twinkleberry and six other other of the squirrel, each carried fat minnows
And... that Nutkin, started running in front and satrted singing again-
"The man in the wilderness said to me, How many strawberries grow in the sea? I answered him as I thought good-- 'As many red herrings as grow in the wood.'"
And Mr. Old Brown took no interest in these riddles, even when he answered them
On the fourth day, the squirrels brought a present of six fat beetles to Mr.Old brown
Each beetle was wrapped up in a dock-leaf and fastened with a pine-needle pin
And this story is really long, so i am going to skip to the end
Eventually, Nutkin was in a waistcoat pocket! Mr. Old Brown grabbed him by the throat and tossed him to the ground! This looks like the end of the story! But it isn't
Old brown carried Nutkin to his home, and held him by his tail
