Keep a Poem in Your Pocket!

 

Keep a poem in your pocket

And a picture in your head

And you’ll never feel lonely

At night when you’re in bed.

 

The little poem will sing to you.

The little picture it brings to you

A dozen dreams to dance to you

At night when you’re in bed.

So-

Keep a picture in your pocket

And a poem in your head

And you’ll never feel lonely

At night when you’re in bed.
