"Oh, the jobs people work at!

Spiral curl rattan to make tiny bees

Out west near Hawtch-Hawtch there's a Hawtch-Hawtcher bee watcher, his job is to watch. Is to keep both his eyes on the lazy town bee, a bee that is watched will work harder you see.

So he watched and he watched, but in spite of his watch that bee didn't work any harder, not mawtch

So then somebody said "Our old bee-watching man just isn't bee watching as hard as he can, he ought to be watched by another Hawtch-Hawtcher. The thing that we need is a bee-watcher-watcher!"

Three pink peonies

Well, the bee-watcher-watcher watched the bee-watcher. He didn't watch well so another Hawtch-Hawtcher had to come in as a watch-watcher-watcher!

And now all the Hawtchers who live in Hawtch-Hawtch are watching on watch watcher watchering watch, watch watching the watcher who's watching that bee.

You're not a Hawtch-Watcher you're lucky you see!"
