I searched through every cupboard shelf -

      The refrigerator too,

But what I looked for wasn’t there:

    Oh just what should I do?      

 

I then searched underneath the chairs:

      I’d surely find it there –

But, search and search and search again:

      But no, not anywhere.

 

I  hunted through my coat pockets,

     Then looked inside my car.

Perhaps you know just where I’ll find

     My lovely chocolate bar.

 

I knew my dog was not a thief

    And my cat was not, that’s true:

But then I heard the sound of feet . . . .

     Oh, surely it’s not YOU?

 

But what is that all round your mouth?

     The truth is out for sure,

For you scoffed the little treat I’d bought -

    Then crept back here for more!
