Gypsy Jane

The girls decided to write a play and it was pretty hilarious.  It was about a lame mother (Karis), a gyspy thief (Karlie), and two daughters, Belle (Susanna) and Mary (Abbi).  Susanna got so excited about it that she stole all of Karis's lines but she was so dramatic that it was hilarious and all the girls just rolled laughing at her.   The girls were so excited about their play that they did two performances and charged 50 cents a ticket (which they promptly gave to the baby bottle campaign for our local Women's Center).  Karis and Karlie also each wrote a song about it and they all danced around the house singing it for days.  I decided to type out their songs so they could look back and remember the fun time they had with their play:

  Gypsie Jane by Karis:
Gypsie Jane, Gypsie Jane,
and the poor mother lame;
had two daughters, Mary and Belle,
They were twins, but you could hardly tell;
Gypsie Jane was a pain,
to Belle's belief, she was a thief;
Sad to say, it was very true,
though she wasn't very blue.

Gypsy Jane by Karlie:
Gypsy Jane, Gypsy Jane,
And the mother who was so lame;
To Belle's belief, she was a theif,
And it was true.
To tell them apart, was easy to do,
Oh I forgot to tell about
the daughters who were so stout.
One was Belle and that's quite true.
The other was Maria.
Gypsy Jane, Gypsy Jane,
Who was a thief was quite a pain.
She stole a necklace sad but true.
But that she did it no one knew.
Until the end they still not knew,
But her skirt left a clue.
There is more I'd like to write.
But their family just had a fright.
This story is hard to end.  So I fear I must just say "The End!"
