I have a puppet on my hand;
And I can make it sing,
Or bow, or run, or jump, or fly,
Or do most anything.
My puppet was a sock before
I gave it eyes and nose
And mouth and ears and hair and hat
And buttons for its clothes.
Sometimes my puppet talks to me
When no one else can hear.
We're such good friends when we're alone
Or someone else is near.
We play fun games like Hide and Seek
Or Tag or Tic Tac Toe.
Ther is no place where I have fun
My puppet cannot go.
I hope you have a puppet too --
Or maybe four or five.
All puppets like to have a friend
To make them come alive.
