"When the Star-Belly children went out to play ball,
Could a Plain Belly get in the game...? Not at all.
You could only play if your bellies had stars
And the Plain Belly children had none upon thars.
When the Star-Belly Sneetches had frankfurter roasts
Or picnics or parties or marshmallow toasts,
They never invited the Plain-Belly Sneetches.
They left them out cold, in the dark of the beaches.
They kept them away. Never let them come near.
And that's how they treated them year after year."
