Come on Ella Jane
A little girl is having a pout
because she wants to go out.
It's Christmas Eve;
snow is all she sees.
But this Christmas Eve
she has to see a doctor;
an evil doctor,
the only one on the roster.
His name is Doctor Pepper,
he has spots on his bald head like a leopard.
His hair is very white,
which always gives her a fright.
Dr Pepper is the worst;
she thinks he needs to be in a hurst.
He is basically the Grinch
and when she leaves, he always gives her a pinch.
She wouldn’t be surprised if he stole Christmas;
he’s harder to please than throwing a discus.
He’s a mean as a snake,
and you can tell he likes cake.
She finally gets to the office;
she steps out and feels the softness.
She sees Doctor Pepper waiting,
waiting for all her complaining:
"Mother, Mother, I don’t want to go!"
"Fine," she said, "you can stay out in the cold."
The girl came to her senses and walked to the Ms.’s;
the woman, "What’s your name?"
"My name is Ella Jane."
"Come on Ella Jane,
it’s time for your pain."
