Witch Called Mabel (A)

Yes, I must agree with you,
    It is a funny name,
But Mabel’s not so funny 
    When she plays her little games.

She likes to hide the things you need
    And watches whilst you search.
She hid my brother's football boots
    And then the parrot's perch.

You always know when she's around
     For Mabel leaves a scent,
But she never leaves enough of it
    To discover where she went.

One day I'll catch that pesky witch
     And put her in a cage,
And I'll laugh and laugh until I cry
     To see her in a rage.

But until that day I’ll warn you all
     That Mabel's running free,
So smell the air and be aware
     Of all you hear and see.
