Baby Bear goes downstairs and sits in his small chair at the table,
he looks into his small bowl. It is empty. "Who's been eating my
porridge?!!", he squeaks.
Papa Bear arrives at the big table and sits in his big chair. He looks
into his big bowl, and it is also empty. "Who's been eating my
porridge?!!", he roars.
Momma Bear puts her head through the serving hatch from the
kitchen and yells, "For Pete's sake, how many times do we have to
go through this?"
It was Momma Bear who got up first, it was Momma Bear who woke
everyone in the house, it was Momma Bear who unloaded the dish-
washer from last night, and put everything away, it was Momma
Bear who went out in the cold early morning air to fetch the newspaper,
it was Momma Bear who set the table, it was Momma Bear who put the
cat out, cleaned the litter box, and filled the cat's water and food dish,
and, now that you've decided to drag your sorry bear-buts downstairs,
and grace Momma Bear's kitchen with your grumpy presence, listen good,
cause I'm only going to say this one more time...
"I HAVEN'T MADE THE PORRIDGE YET!!~"
