The Riding Hoods
Little Red Riding Hood was walking through the woods
On her way, she met a wolf who was oh so hungry
Red Riding Hood ran away to her grandmother's house
But waiting there was the wolf as hungry as could be…
Little Red Riding Hood was never seen again
Neither was her grandmother, no matter how they searched
The only thing that they could find was Riding Hood's basket
And no one ever discovered what the wolf had done.
Little Orange Riding Hoodwas one who loved to sing
He sang all day, he sang all night, of all that he believed
His melodies reached far and wide and traveled on the wind
And people flocked to hear the voice of Orange Riding Hood…
One day his voice cracked, leaving him speechless
He put a hand up to his throat, searching for his voice
Orange Riding Hood became upset when he could not find it
Little Orange Riding Hood would never sing again.
Little Yellow Riding Hood was a great athlete
She played each game with all her heart and capability
Yellow Riding Hood would always win the games
And then she'd gloat and dance around with trophy in hand…
The other children did not want to play with her
So they all conspired to keep her out of sport
Little Yellow Riding Hood was in an "accident"
Her now useless legs waste away in a wheelchair.
Little Green Riding Hood loved to make bouquets
She played all day in the meadows, fields, and by the stream
Green Riding Hood would collect whole wagonfuls
Then take them home and assemble them, bloom after bloom…
On a pretty spring day, Green Riding Hood went out
With her little wagon to pick many flowers
She trodded on a bee's nest and as a result was stung
No one knew that Riding Hood had an allergy to bees.
Little Blue Riding Hood was talented in art
Holed up in his room, he drew all day and night
His hands were stained black from the charcoal that he used
To make his drawings beautiful and realistic…
So many papers were used for his art
He stacked them up higher until they reached the sky
The wind pushed them over and suffocated him
All that's left of Riding Hood is his legacy of art.
Indigo and Violet Riding Hood are twins
Their favorite hobby is roaming in the woods
They found an abandoned house hidden in the trees
And made it their secret meeting place…
Indigo and Violet Riding Hood walked through the woods
To the secret meeting place to have a small picnic
Violet Riding Hood held the basket
While Indigo Riding Hood led her along the path…
When he turned around, Violet Riding Hood was gone
He quickly went to search for her, but met instead…
Indigo and Violet Riding Hood are gone
Missing within the woods of the hungry wolf.
