The silliest thing  (echo)        I’ve ever seen   (echo etc.)          is wacky old witch (etc.)     on a flying machine. 
The witch flew high.    The witch flew low.    The witch flew fast.      The witch flew slow.
The witch flew up.       The witch flew down    She circles all around the town.
Then turning left           and turning right,      she disappeared         into …the…night.
