Dyeing in the Key of Seuss.

Dr Seuss Does The Dyeing
I dyed it up,
I dyed it down,
I dyed it pink,
I dyed it brown,
I dyed it red,
I dyed it green,
(The brightest green
You've ever seen),
I dyed it orange,
I dyed it mustard,
I dyed it banana,
I dyed it custard.
I chopped it up
When I had done,
And made a quilt,
Oh, just for fun.
The quilt it sings,
The quilt it glows
(just why it glows,
Nobody knows).
The quilt is fancy,
The quilt is bright,
The quilt it shines
Into the night.
The quilt is loved
By my young son Fred
Because he likes
To read in bed.
