I had a little turtle, I called her Myrtle,
She lived in the bath and made me laugh.
But when she ate the soap, I just couldn't cope,
At the end of the day, I gave her away.

So I got a snake who would only eat cake,
Spread all over with honey. he cost lots of money.
I did love him so but he just had to go.
He went to a man who drove a white van.

Now I've got a teddy and he's always ready,
To give me some love and heavens above.
He's always so good and never needs food,
So I'll love him forever and part with him never.
