One day, sitting in my room
My friend and I were bored
It was I who spoke up:
"Hey!" I said, "Let's bungee-jump
"At the pool off of the high board!"
They emptied it just yesterday
The pool was twelve feet deep
We grabbed the cords and off we went
(We made sure to keep discreet)
I went first; I tied the cord
Off of the high-dive ledge
I made sure it was really tight
And off away I went
I plummeted down the whole way through
But something was going wrong
The rope just wasn't going tight
The rope was way too long…
SMACK! CRASH! BANG! SMASH!
I went flying to the concrete floor
"Cool!" I said, as I looked up
Just in time to see my friend soar
The cord, I saw, he cut in half
And down, down, down he soared
But to my horror, I realized
His rope was way to short!
Up he bounced, the way he came
His head colliding with the board WHAM!
The cord then snapped, and down he came
Down to the concrete floor SLAM!
We glanced at each other, shook our heads
And lay down on the drain
Bungee jumping was really cool
And we're doing it again!
