Mabel One is tons of fun;
her laughter's quite infectious.
And Mabel Two cooks up a stew
both tasty and nutritious.
Mabel Three brews up a tea
to cure whatever ails y'all.
And Mabel Four is quick to pour
a double scotch substant'all.
Mabel Five can swim and dive
like any gold Olympian.
And Mabel Six can easily fix
a stalled-out station wagon.
But Mabel Seven seems sent by heaven--
she's tall and slim and glam'rous,
with golden hair and skin so fair--
a boyhood dream diaph'nous.
But stay away, the grownups say,
from any Mabel ever.
They're witches all--resist their call--
or they your head may sever!
