Goes scritch, scratch, scritch

Goes scritch scratch scritch
Scritch scratch scritch
Right at my desk.

The letter that I wrote
Goes fold, fold, fold.
Fold, fold, fold.
Fold, fold, fold.
The letter that I wrote goes
Fold, fold, fold.
Into the envelope.

Slurp, slurp, slurp.
Slurp, slurp, slurp.
Slurp, slurp slurp.
The glue that I lick goes
Slurp, slurp, slurp.
To seal up the edge.
