DOOK-A DOOK-A DOOK-A DOOK ME

by Paul E. Jamison

Human (sitting up in bed):
          I’m feeling done in.
          I can’t win.
          I've never had free-roams before.

Sable ferret (from bedroom floor):
          He means us?

Cinnamon and Albino ferrets (also from bedroom floor):
          Uh huh.

Human:
          I didn’t want you getting
          Up into the bedding.
          It only leads to trouble
          And bed wetting!

          To your wants I did bow.
          I regret it now.
          I don’t think I can take much more.

Cinnamon, Albino and Sable ferrets:
          More, more, more!

Human:
          I put up no resistance.
          I thought I’d stay the distance.
          But now you’re everywhere.
          I need assistance...

          Dook-a dook-a dook-a dook me!
          I wanna get some sleep!
          But you don’t care at all, you ferrets,
          Creatures of the night!

          Sniff my ear with your nose.
          Bite my toes.
          I'll jump on up,
          And chase you ‘round.

Cinnamon, Albino and Sable ferrets:
          ‘Round, ‘round, ‘round!

Human:
          And that's just one small fraction
          Of dissatisfaction.
          I want to get some sleep.
          Don’t need this action...

          Dook-a dook-a dook-a dook me!
          I wanna get some sleep!
          But you don’t care at all, you ferrets,
          Creatures of the night!

Sable ferret:
          Dook-a dook-a dook-a dook him!

Cinnamon and Albino ferrets:
          He wants to get some sleep!

Sable ferret:
          But we don’t care at all, us ferrets,

Cinnamon and Albino ferrets:
          Creatures of the night!

Human:
          Oh, dook-a dook-a dook-a dook me!
          I wanna get some sleep!
          But you don’t care at all, you ferrets,
          Creatures of the night!

Sable ferret (jumps up on bed):
          Creatures of the night...

Cinnamon ferret (jumps up on bed):
          Creatures of the night?

Albino ferret (jumps up on bed):
          Creatures of the night!

Silver Mitt ferret (jumps up on bed):
          Creatures of the night...

Champagne ferret (jumps up on bed):
          Creatures of the night...

Panda Mitt ferret (jumps up on bed):
          Creatures of the night...

Dark-Eyed Wihte ferret (jumps up on bed):
          Creatures of the night...

Human:
          Creatures of the night!

(Human pulls covers over head while seven ferrets link paws and dance around in a circle.)
