Plot/Description

Spoiler warning! The Centipede sings this song, which is his favourite of all. He dances wildly on top of the peach singing about the time when “pigs were swine” and “monkeys chewed tobacco” and “goats ate tapioca”. We never hear the end of it, though, because unfortunately he gets too close to the edge of the peach and falls off.
