Lizzie had a lion with a big bad roar!

Came into the bedroom,
where there was a cuboard door

Lizzie's lion wasn't friendly, Lizzie's lion wasn't tame..
Mother lets her daughter call her by her secret lion name

I know one night about a robber,
with a rotten rubber mask,
he came into the bedroom- and he didn't even ask!


With him he brought toffee,
no hickey hickey sweet,
to make friends with a lion- if a lion he should meet


First he sticked it on the wall, then he sticked it on his back
then he picked up Lizzies piggy-bank and stuck it in his sack

Just as the rotten robber was preparing to depart,
good old Lizzies's lion wakened
With a snuffle and a start.

And he muttered "toffee's spittle!" and he muttered "toffee's poo!"
and he gave the rotten robber,
an experimentle chew

And with that he shooed the lion,
using every word he knew
But each time he shooed, the lion
merely took another chew!

It was: "luckah, lackah- leave Shoo, you good old boy!"
But the lion went on munching
With a lick of simple joy..

It was: "move mother go-go-go - this a disgrace!"
but the lion went on muching with a smile upon his face...

Then that Lizzie heard a rumble,
young Lizzie heard the fight
and young Lizzie got her slippers,
and turned on the bedroom light

There was robber on the toy-shelf!
There was robber on the rug!
There was robber in the lion
(Who was looking rather smmmuuuug)!

But young Lizzie wasn't angry,
young Lizzie wasn't rough,
She simply said the Secret Name:
"Lion! - that's enough."

Then young Lizzy and her Lion
Took the toes and tum and head,
And they put them in the dustbin
And they both went back to bed.

And they both went back to bed.
And they both went back to bed.
