Ruffus gets to play Red Riding Hood and sings this song as he makes his way through the forest to grandmother's house.


Sun drops tricklin' through the trees,
Pansies tend to make me sneeze,
When I stoop to sniff hello;
Mama always warned me
In plainest prose:
"Careful where you stick your nose!"

But I still
Smell the flowers.
Cuz it's far to nice out
To quail and cower.

June bugs
Scurry 'cross my feet.
Ma says:
"You are what you eat."
'Guess that gives me four more legs.

Papa says of strangers
"Harbour no trust.
Caution and precaution
Are always a must."
Papa's always preachin'
But I pay no mind.
Trouble can't be hard to find.
