Sneaking up behind her, just as quietly as could be

Some gremlins come a ‘calling, for those cookies

They don’t want to scare her, so, patiently, they wait

Perhaps, she’ll notice them, or else it be too late

These little guys are hungry, she’s an impediment

Sweets are all they need, for a little nourishment

They have to grab the box, then safely get away

Hoping she won’t chase them, they don’t want to play

Still, she doesn’t see them, the closer they become

Almost there, not too much more, to steal a cookie crumb

No, they say, they want it all, of this they have no doubt

And so this ends the tale, of the gremlins and Girl Scout
