Hello Sammy Spider

Well hello Sammy Spider.
    I see you’re in my bath.
Shouldn’t you be outdoors
    Running on the path?

Shouldn’t you be making webs
    To catch a little fly?
Oh, you’ve fallen in my bath tub
    And I don’t want you to cry.

Well, hello Sammy Spider.
    Yes, you’re looking up at me.
Let me get you out of there
    And then you can run free.

There you go, poor Sammy. 
    Be careful how you go.
Now run out in the garden
    To where the flowers grow.
