Rap to Ethan’s Voice


Ethan doesn’t like to talk,
Him and Polly like to walk,
There really good friends,
Right till the very end,
Polly is nice,
Together there like sugar and spice,
Polly invited him over for dinner,
Oh he felt like a winner,
He tried to sneak out,
But that made his dad shout,
Polly might help Ethan find his voice,
But that will be Ethan’s choice.
