Hot water bottle

On the B side
we have the seaside
donkey rides
slides
ghost trains
hook-a-duck
come and try your luck
hoopla
hoorah.

Zebedee,
well he would spoil the fun
off on the magic roundabout run.

Bedtime
after a fine day,
still want to play?
count the monsters under the bed
hide in the blankets
cover your head.

What it was to be a child
Jack Frost running wild
cold tiled floors
and the water too

remember
when your jeans set solid on the line?
what a time it was.
