Surprise party

When I reached my house at seven

Max was playing the guitar

Jane was sitting on the table

Eating pickles from a jar

Mark was sitting at the piano

Playing sonatas for Louise

And my parrot Paul was singing

All the tunes and melodies

Bob was sleeping under the table

He couldn't even stay awake

And my dog was in the kitchen

Eating up the birthday cake.
