The kitchen smells of parafin
The stairways turning black
And Teddy's looking tired
Cause he's lying on his back

Crackling curtains dance in ribbons
Flames are waltzing down the hall
A beetle turns a somersault
In a matchbox by the wall

He's getting restless with his lettuce
Frying tonight in the dolls House!

Mummy's smiling with a match,
Blows softly through the doorway
And draws patterns in the ash
Crackle Crackle Flash Flash!

Golly's leaning out of the window
He gives a little wave
And as only golly's can
But he can't come out to play

Sparks creep up his trouser leg
But he doesn't care cause he's busy
Watching mummy comb her curly hair
Very pretty on the setee

Playing tonight in the dolls house!

Mummy's smiling with a match
Blows softly through the doorway
And draws patterns in the ash
Fizzle Fizzle Zap Zap!

Up on the second floor
Little Wendy takes a bath
Her skin is melting slowly
But she manages to laugh

She knows a dozen words or more
She's always so polite
Pull her string out slowly
And she'll sing all through the night
Sing forever, really clever!

Frying tonight in the dolls house
But Mummy's getting bored
She tore up all her comics
'cos she's not a kiddie anymore
Nor is Daddy
