The toys’ playtime
When we go to bed at the end of the day,
Our toys wake up and start to play.
They wait until we’re fast asleep,
Then THEY come alive and out they creep.
The ball goes bouncing. The doll does a dance.
The little ponies preen and prance.
The toy car roars across the room.
The rocket starts to take off: ZOOM!
The robot reads a picture book,
Then teddy comes and takes a look.
And all the time we’re sleeping tight,
The toys are playing through the night.
But when the sunlight warms our faces,
The toys sit quietly in their places.
They do not move. They make no noise.
You don’t fool us, you naughty toys!
