Tickety Boo

Tickety Boo the clockwork ghost

Used to be a wind up toy

A robot made of tin he was

A little wind up robot boy


Tickety Boo still needs winding

Winding with a magic key

Because if he winds down he will disappear

Into toy limbo, that's where he'll be


He haunts his old toy shop

Looking for someone to play

With him and to wind him up

So in the toy shop he can stay


Behind the boxes of toys and games

You might see him looking at you

And if it's a time when he needs winding

You might hear a little Tickety Boo!
