I'm so sad and lonely
Hurting deep inside
Won't you come a little closer
and see the tears I've cried?

My coat is stained and wrinkled
I've only got one eye
I've been soiled so many times
and then hung out to dry

Still I kept on loving you
through all the tears I've cried
with all the kids in the family
Who once thought I had died

Someone tossed me in the trash
said I wasn't worth a dime
But the kids were sad for my demise
and bought me some more time

Now they're gone and I'm alone
Sitting on this shelf
No one's touched me for so long
I've been left in the dust by myself

Remember when the kids were ill?
You called on me each time
I've been everywhere they have been
Brought comfort without a whine

When they cried, I wiped their tears
Still got the stains on me
Got gum and candy in my hair
I need a washing you can see

Just put some stuffin' in my belly
For so long has been caving in
A stitch or two here and there
would fix my torn up chin

A button from the sewing box,
would make me see just fine
I'd love again to have two ears
One's been off a long, long time

Just pick me up and fluff and buff
And love me once again
You'll see a heart that still can love
and I'll be your very best friend.
