Until the cell phones entered

It was obvious that it was

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 201 (Every Single Holiday)

There was a lady-
Who happened to
celebrate every
holiday that might be.

She’d celebrate Halloween
and Thanksgiving, Kwanza,
and Christmas, of course-
She’d celebrate New Year’s
Eve in full force.

She’d celebrate Valentine’s
Day and the President one-
She’d celebrate St. Patricks’ Day,

Passover, Easter, and couldn’t
wait to get that Cinco De
Mayo celebrating done.

And of course the rest of
the year she’d celebrate
all of those other holidays
Celebration for her lasted
the whole year through.

There was a lady-
Who happened to
celebrate every
holiday that might be.
