I remember once I had a small blue toy,
I played with it,
I slept with it,
I ate, I climbed, I fell with it.
I remember I had one furry green rug,
I tucked into it at night,
I would shrink my height,
And stretched it with all my might,
It won’t cover my legs,
So I would make a fine teddy out of it,
I shadowed the light with it,
I knew it was small,
But it was my all.
I have a car,
I have a condo with a bar,
I have a boat with those fancy oars,
I have a beautiful house near the shore,
All these things I have borne,
They say it’s the best one could own,
All these BIG, mighty, luxuries I have,
With those faded memories of green and blue,
However hard it tries,
It just can’t match up with it.
