Sun Forgot to Shine
(adding 9 + 9)
One day the sun,
Forgot to shine,
"Busy adding 9 plus 9!"
Screamed the sun,
"I don't have time,
When I'm adding,
Nine plus nine!!!!!!!!!"
It got dark,
It got cold,
Then a girl,
9yearsold,
Said these words,
To the sun,
And they helped,
Everyone...
"Listen sun,
It's plain to me,
We need your light,
So we can see!"
She told the sun,
9 and 9,
Makes 18,
Every time!
Sun said, Yes,
Yes, you're right,
And turned on,
Its sunny light!!!
9 + 9 = 18
