When I was small I had this toy

Of cotton cloth, it was a boy

And when I went to bed at night

I’d hug my Sammy oh so tight.

He wore long overalls of blue

His shirt was striped with pockets too

Brown hair had he of woolen yarn

His eyes were closed, his mouth a yawn.

I  loved my Sam with sleepy eyes

My daddy won this grand surprise

One summer night twas after dark

In Palisades Amusement Park.

They’d spin a wheel around and round

And when it stopped the number found

Could win a prize but mostly lost

Just one thin dime was all it cost.

Sam lived with me many a year

He was my friend and brought me cheer

But after daddy went and died

Perhaps Sam ran away to hide.

I never found him after that

Of course we moved to a new flat

I’ve often hoped that he did find

Another child to treat him kind !
