When I’m down or feeling flat,
I think about a pug in a hat.
When I’m tired and full of sighs,
I think of hedgehogs with goggly eyes.
When I toss and turn ‘cause I can’t sleep,
I think of pink fields with purple sheep.
When I’m fed up of all the knocks,
I think of lizards in fluffy socks.
When I can’t get up ‘cause I’m too low,
I think of penguins playing tick tack toe.
When I wish I’d never been born,
I think of squirrels chewing ears of corn.
When I feel I just can’t do a thing,
I think of frogs decked out with bling.
When I sit hoping this feeling passes,
I think of parrots wearing reading glasses.
When I start to think I’ve lost the plot,
I think of a bulldog asleep in a cot.
When I’m mad or feeling sour,
I think of hippos dancing on a flower.
All these things can make me grin,
Like a cow playing chess on a wheelie bin.
So next time you’re down or feeling flat,
Remember to think of a pug in a hat.
