Then, the lightning struck, and she shivered and shuddered,
and while hurrying home, she slipped in the gutter.
Her paw would not yield; the grate held her down,
and she wept and she wailed, afraid she might drown.
She feared none would answer because she'd been snooty.
Who would now help our defenseless Patootie?
The others were home now, all safe and so dry,
while our beauty Patootie would soon surely die!
