It isn't very long.

(Scene changes to show Bob, wearing an old-fashioned boy's costume with straw hat.)

Bob (speaking): Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water. (A lot of water splashes on him.)

(Scene changes to show Bob in ordinary outfit, at Oscar's can.)

Bob (singing): You go to visit Oscar. You knock upon his can.
(Knocks, lid opens and someone says:)

Unidentified voice (speaking): Oscar isn't in!

(Scene changes to Maria and a human baker.)

Maria (singing): You go to see a baker.
He's making custard pies.
You ask if you can have one, and the baker yells:

Baker (holds up a pie): Surprise! (Ready to throw it in her face)

Maria (holds up another pie and throws it in his face first): Surprise!

Chorus: Surprise, surprise, surprise!

(Scene changes to show Bob, wearing Jack and Jill costume.)

Maria: We knew it was your birthday.

Mister Hooper (holding up a sweater): I hope this is your size.

(I don't know the rest, but I'm pretty sure it ends with "Surprise!")
