Do big black spiders scare you all
As they climb swiftly up the wall –
Or when they run across your floor
And disappear through any door?
Then in the bath they’ll sit and wait.
Is frightening you so really great?
You try and catch them and they’ll run;
Then hide again. That’s ‘spider-fun!’
But have you ever sat and thought:
‘That spider’s frightened he’ll be caught,’ –
And he’s not happy in your bath.
He’d much prefer your garden path!
He doesn’t want to be your friend,
Nor wants his spider-life to end –
Ask Dad to carefully put him out
Where he’ll be happy, there’s no doubt.
