WISHING MAN

I’m the friend of all the children,

And I’ll help you if I can,

Just tell me what your wishes are,

For I’m the Wishing Man.

I have wishbones on my fingers,

I have myst’ry in my eyes,

My clothes are trimmed with horseshoes,

And they’re stained with magic dyes.

My pocket’s full of rabbits’ feet,

And clover leaves and charms,

For luck I’ve got a big black cat

All tattooed on my arms,

I’m a friend of all the children,

And I’ll help you if I can,

So tell me what your wishes are-

For I’m the Wishing Man.

I come from a distant country

Away up near the pole,

But the things that I am telling you,

You mustn’t tell a soul.

I know every witch and goblin,

And if you would believe!

I have fortunes in my pocket-book,

And wonders up my sleeve.

When any little boy or girl

Says, “Wishing Man, appear!”

I jump right up from underneath,

And here I am, my dear!

I’m a friend of all the children,

And I’ll help you if I can,

So tell me what your wishes are-

For I’m the Wishing Man.
