Bring Back My Sister to Me

(Sing to the tune of “My Bonnie”)

My sister woke up in the morning.
She had to go potty real bad.
My father had just left the seat up.
She fell in the toilet—how sad.

Bring back, bring back,
please bring back my sister to me, to me.
Bring back, bring back,
please bring back my sister to me.

My brother went into the bathroom.
He carried his new fishing pole.
He cast his line into the toilet.
A fish pulled him into the bowl.

Bring back, bring back,
please bring back my brother to me, to me.
Bring back, bring back,
please bring back my brother to me.

The toilet just never stops running.
The toilet tank float caused a leak.
My dad slipped while fixing the floater.
Poor Daddy is now up the creek!

Bring back, bring back,
please bring back my daddy to me, to me.
Bring back, bring back,
please bring back my daddy to me.

Mom noticed the john overflowing.
She grabbed an old plunger and ran.
The plunger broke while she was plunging.
That’s how she wound up in the can.

Bring back, bring back,
please bring back my mommy to me, to me.
Bring back, bring back,
please bring back my mommy to me.

Last seen on the seat of the toilet,
our kitty was chasing a mouse.
Our cat lost her balance and fell in.
Her “MEOW!” could be heard through the house.

Bring back, bring back,
please bring back our kitty to me, to me.
Bring back, bring back,
please bring back our kitty to me.

My dog took a drink from the toilet.
He stood with his paws on the ground.
He leaned over into the toilet.
He fell in and just about drowned.

Bring back, bring back,
please bring back my doggy to me, to me.
Bring back, bring back,
please bring back my doggy to me.
