Annette Funicello, you got
Discovered by Walt Disney, who
Liked your young wholesomeness a lot.
The Mickey Mouse Club - Walt picked you
To exemplify on T.V.
The best traits of the '50s kid,
Being of good morality,
With songs and dance and smiles you did
Give baby boomers aired delight.
Such talent 'neath those Mickey ears,
On the old Dumont black and white.
Ah yes, those were the wonder years.
Annette, we know that you do part
Ever a Mouseketeer at heart.
