Once upon a time Mrs. Bird was going to a banquet with her husband. She needed something wonderful to wear. (Mrs. Bird has great style.) She went downtown to Suzy M's to shop.

"I need something really nice for the Umpa banquet," she said. (Umpa stands for Utah Municipal power association--her husband is a member.)

What's an "Umpa?" the sales girl said.

Another sales girl was eavesdropping, "You know...Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah!" she sang.
"That's how it goes!
Ev'ryone knows."

And then Mrs. Bird and the two sales girls danced and sang the "Oompah" song all through the store, winding through the racks of clothes.

Only Mrs. Bird would go shopping and end up in an Oompah parade. Long live Mrs. Bird.
