I have a special pet
Her name is Harriet
And I found her in a wood some time ago.
She’s been with me for a while
And she really makes me smile
She’s a Crocotiggersaurous with one toe.
When I found her she was small
But now she’s grown quite tall.
To get her in my bedroom is a squee-eeeze.
Her head is very wide
So she turns it on its side
And crawls in through the door upon her knees.
She eats breakfast lunch and tea
Pretty much the same as me
Though she doesn’t like fish fingers (and I do).
She wears daddy’s ancient shirts,
My mummy’s jeans and skirts
And one single lace-up pointy big black shoe.
She can’t come to school with us
So she kicks up quite a fuss
Till mummy has to give her nose a blow.
She is waiting after school
With skipping rope and bat and ball
And we play games until my friends all have to go.
And when it’s time to go to sleep
We snuggle down inside the sheets
And we cuddle and she rocks me to and fro.
She cuddles very tight
And she keeps me safe all night.
She’s my Crocotiggersaurous with one toe.
