How to Turn Your Teacher Purple!

Heebie Geebie, Hurple Burple
Time to turn my teacher…PURPLE!

Simply chant this magic spell
soon your teacher looks unwell:
purple cheeks and purle nose
purpleness from head to toes

Feed her beetroot every hour
see her fill with purple power
bloomin’ like a purple flower
how she’ll scream
when in the shower!!!
