Jonathan Jo

          Jonathan Jo
          Has a mouth like an "O"
And a wheelbarrow full of of surprises;
          If you ask for a bat,
          Or for something like that,
He has got it, whatever the size is.

          If you're wanting a ball,
          It's no trouble at all;
Why, the more that you ask for, the merrier-
          Like a hoop and a top,
          And a watch that won't stop,
And some sweets, and an Aberdeen terrier.

          Jonathan Jo
          Has a mouth like an "O"
But this is what makes him so funny:
          If you give him a smile,
          Only once in a while,
Then he never expects any money!
