Bad Habit Marvin


Bad Habit Marvin

Do you know Bad Habit Marvin?

He bites his nails
and grabs dog's tails,
and stubs his toes
and picks his nose,
and burps out loud
(it makes him proud)
to grind his teeth
and smell his feet
and shake his head
and wet his bed.
He tickles girls
and yanks their curls
and steals their books
with dirty looks.
He never washes
or wears galoshes,
or helps mom cook
or reads a book.
Bad Habit Marvin,
you know him well,
And every time he's near,
you yell,
"Bad Habit Marvin,
why ya act so dumb?!"
But he can't answer back
'cause he's sucking his thumb.
