THE PUPPET

When I was little girl of six
I wanted to be a ventriloquist
THE PUPPET I wanted was on the store shelf
I picked it up all by myself
My Dad laughed as he paid the money
I called THE PUPPET “Sonny”
He had a head made of wood
And I carefully played with him as I should
I taught him to speak in my own way
I spent so much time with him each day
The only thing no one could teach
Was to not move my lips when I speak
And everyone thought it very funny
That my lips moved and not Sonny’s
I was determined that no one would laugh at me
So I decided perhaps I should see
How I can make it appear that I was a true ventriloquist
That didn’t look like a fool and move my lips
So I turned on the radio
Thinking no one would ever know
And I moved Sonny’s mouth and he could sing
But they all knew and the laughter still rings
Because I was known as the ventriloquist
Who had to move her lips
So I put Sonny in the Toy Chest hidden away
And would only take him out and play
When no one was in sight
And he’d sleep on my bed at night
And he spoke words
Words no one but me ever heard
So I had the last laugh you see
Because Sonny only talked to me
