The Astounding Mouse-ecco,
Who dove in Prosecco,
Prepared for his most daring dive.
The bubbles, he claimed,
Were more soft than Champagne.
Twas the secret for how he survived.
But alas on this day,
He'd forgotten to pay,
And his glass was filled up with plain water.
He was still unaware,
As he dove with great flare.
Now his act is performed by his daughter.
