Cicada, Cicahdah

Sung to the tune of “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off”
© 2004

Cicada

I say cicada,
You say cicahdah,
I tell you, “later.”
You ask, “What’s the mattah?”
Cicada, cicahdah,
Tell me what’s the mattah?
Let’s call the whole thing off.

They’re in the bushes,
They’re on the sidewalk,
They’ll be in my mouth
If I try to talk.
The bushes, the sidewalk,
In my mouth if I talk,
Let’s call the whole thing off.

Cicada

You say, “I’m hungry!”
I say, “I’m leaving.”
You start consuming
While I start heaving.
Hungry and eating,
Departing and heaving,
Let’s call the whole thing off.
