My friend has a yacht, a house by the sea,
But I have a boy who is half-past three
I have no jewels, no satin gown,
But I have a boy who is butter-nut brown.
My friend has an orchid, my friend has a rose,
But I have a boy with a freckled nose.
O gull tell the waves that I have no yacht.
Wind, tell the wild forget-me-not
That I have no jewels, no shimmering gown,
No satin slippers, no pillows of down,
But I have a robin, a wind-swept hill,
A pocket of dreams, a heart to fill,
And I have a boy who is half-past three-
A little lad who looks like me.
