lyrics

Aggie and Timmy had an idea
They thought it was really winning
They would spin round and round and around
And then they would keep on spinning

After her sixty-third time around
She started to lose her smile
She was so dazed she figured she’d spin ’round
Only once in a while

He was told it wouldn’t be good
So he moved like he thought he should
And so from that day Timmy would
Fidget and wiggle whenever he could

Aggie and Timmy liked all the same stuff
The only difference was how much was enough

Aggie and Timmy had an idea
They thought it was a real winner
They would each have a gallon of ice cream
And nothing else for dinner

After her seventh chocolate scoop
She started to lose her smile
She was so sick she figured she’d eat it
Only once in a while

He was told it wouldn’t be good
So he ate what he thought he should
And so from that day Timmy would
Gobble and gorge whenever he could

Aggie and Timmy liked all the same stuff
The only difference was how much was enough

Aggie and Timmy had an idea
That even in lovely weather
They would stay inside everyday watching
Television forever

After nine days glued to the boob tube
She started to lose her smile
She was so bored she figured she’d watch it
Only once in a while

He was told it wouldn’t be good
So he did what he thought he should
And so from that day Timmy would
Couch potato whenever he could

Aggie and Timmy liked all the same stuff
The only difference was how much was enough

Aggie and Timmy liked all the same stuff
The only difference was how much was enough
