BIG TOE MEETS BIG TOMATOE
Little did Big Tomato know,
she would meet Mr. Big Toe.
She did not know that Big Toe
had a radio show.
The radio show was called
'Big Toe Wants To Know'
Big Tomato walked through the door,,
knowing she had an interview at 4.
Waiting in the lobby remembering what to say,
she bumped into doll Melodie Mezoree'.
'Wow, it's Melodie Mezoree' how are you today? '
'Oh great nice to see you Big Tomato,
I was just on the radio show! '
Big Tomato replied, 'I will talk about how I can fly-
how I can fly way up in the sky.'
Then Big Toe walked in,
he was happy to see Big Tomato with a grin.
Both of them shook hands,
and Big Tomato talked and sang,
on the mic behind the stand.
It was Big Tomato's big day,
every child listened to what she had to say.
