The pressure inside
Is building
It comes out through my eyes
I stop up the tears
It comes out through my nose
My ears start tickling
The teakettle is whistling
It’ll blow a gasket
If we don’t poke a hole
Make it quick
Before she explodes
Oops! We broke her
Now she’s deflated
Unable to pull through
She made her escape
And clammed up once more
