Three Blind Mice

Sang sent this idea in inspired by a local rock band who rewrote (and attempted to sing!) Three Blind Mice using as many synonyms as possible.

Give it a try. A word processor with a thesaurus could be helpful as you start running out of your own ideas for substitute words. Here's the original.
Three blind mice.
Three blind mice.
See how they run.
See how they run.
They all ran after the farmer's wife,
Who cut off their tails with a carving knife.
Did you ever see such a sight in your life
As three blind mice.


Here's one of the band's versions:
:

:
A trio of visually handicapped rodents
A trio of visually handicapped rodents
Observe how they motivate
Observe how they motivate
The group scurried toward the spouse of the agriculturist
Who removed their rear appendage with a meat cleaver
Have you ever observed such a presentation in your existence
As a trio of visually handicapped rodents


(Though Sang wasn't sure about the "farmer's wife" part since they have to sing it really fast!)
