Please, don’t confuse me with the one on a shelf
I’d much rather be, where lies the green grass
I fancy my time, sitting here, on my… butt
The light, it draws sweetness, closer to me
I’m so very happy, watching a lantern fairy
I love how she dances, around, in the night
Sparkling brightly, underneath the starlight
So if you have a moment, or two, to spare
Come sit for a while, I’m happy to share
This place I call home, though fancy, it’s not
But, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it, ’cause I sure do, a lot!
Oh dear, did I forget, to tell you my name?
Why it’s Jed, this is true, I must proclaim.
