I know a little mushroom boy whose cap is full of spots
He likes to sit under the plants inside when it is hot.
If you peek about inside your home and are so very still
You might just find him sitting there on your window sill
In the morning he will join you for a cup of tea
And sit there with a happy grin to keep you company.
But in the lazy afternoon he'll tug his spotty cap
over his eyes and snuggle up for an afternoon nap.
Be sure to look for him in your home and become his friend
For he will help you every day a helping hand he'll lend.
He has a special job you see, just like the garden gnome
To keep a watch an guard in all the rooms inside your home!
