Wandering Wanda

Wandering WandaO young wandering Wanda comes out of the west,Of all the fruit eaters her legs are the best.She can climb Grizzly Peak, Mt. Diablo also,And the rocky Sierra, all covered with snow.Some girls get tired,But she gets inspiredWith determined desireTo climb higher and higher.Then she seems to have wingsSo she laughs and she springsAnd her footies rejoice.And when she comes homingTired of lessons and roaming,She eats very muchThough meat she won't touch.06270
