Rubber Star

Take a load off
You might strain your shoulder
Loosen up a little
Hereís a piece off rubber

You need not waste much time
To learn this nifty trick
All you need are your fingers
And a simple cheap elastic

Stretch your imagination
You donít have to have a lot
Just twist that piece of rubber
and a rubber star youíve got!

Donít mind your blackhole sorrow
Thatís inelastic crap
You see no matter what happens
The rubber star wont snap!

Rubber Star, Rubber Star
Shines so near yet stretches far
