Is a very queer clock
It doesn’t say tick
And it doesn’t say tock
It hasn’t a cuckoo
It hasn’t a chime
And I really don’t think
It can tell me the time!
I have ten little fingers And they all belong to me I can make them do things Would you like to see? I can shut them up tight I can open them wide I can put them together I can make them all hide I can make them jump high I can make them jump low I can fold them up gently And hold them just so.
