Single-minded Sally woke up just before she died
and, looking round the Faces,
saw there was no place to hide.

Single-minded Sally knew she’d left it far too late
and she could not think of any way
to make the Faces wait.
And the way they all kept looking
with their strange unblinking eyes
made it absolutely certain
she was in for a surprise.

Single-minded Sally took a long and lingering breath
and explained, without much confidence,
she wasn’t ready for her death!
The Faces went on staring
and their mouths began to grin
and they clattered all their yellow teeth
which made a fearful din.

Single-minded Sally fought for breath
with all her might.
And all those yellow Faces blew
and Sal went out just like a light!
