Six Strands of Seaweed
(adding 6 + 6)


6 salted strands of seaweed,
seaweed strand seaweed strandseaweed strandseaweed strandseaweed strandseaweed strand
Slapped straight upon my plate,
This slightly salted seaweed,
Was not the kind I ate!
My sister loved that seaweed,
Thought it tasted good,
Gobbled her 6 pieces,

seaweed strandseaweed strandseaweed strandseaweed strandseaweed strandseaweed strand
I really knew she would…
I gave her my 6 seaweeds,
She ate without a frown,
How many strands of seaweed,
Had my sister swallowed down?
