Mystery Zone, or A Lotta Endings

They lived happily ever after
And then the sun came up
And then the sun go down
The couple is riding off into the sunset
The End
They threw a pie at the shark, the end
“We’ll have to do this again sometime”
“See ya later, turkey!”
“I have a train to catch”
My hero!
Good night and God bless
We’re closed!
Take and catch an airplane
Keep in touch, never come back!
I imagine the dummy
It’s how the turkey played the game
With no strings attached
Exit stage left
And the two-timer was never heard from again
How the turkey danced tutu in the ballet
I will kick you off the curb
I will kick you off the planet
You cheating turkey!
Love me never to say I’m sorry

And they danced to music
Dogs chance squares sometimes to bark
The family played the piano
Goodnite, Johnboy
Forgiving you family
And the wind swept the plain
The wind moving the grass
Like life
Tune in tomorrow!
The dog is happy with the owner
What a happy ending
The tail hit my leg
A flying dog flying in the mountains
Gloomy gray sky
The elevator doors closed
