Six o'clock in the morning,
Wake up by the bed.
There sits a Japanese toy
And I like it.

See the name on the wrapping,
Can't read yet but I know:
it's made for me (lucky boy)
And I want it.

Lights that flash, wheels that go round
Digital display
Fresh silicon chips to enjoy
And I need them

(Where's the batteries?).
Sitting silent and empty.
Wish I could breathe life
in my new friend who's terribly still.

And I like him.
Just like me. P'rhaps he's hungry.
Six volts make him smile
And twelve volts would probably kill.

How I like him.
"Daddy, where's the batteries
I can't find my batteries".
(There's no batteries)

Seven o'clock in the morning
They find me by the bed
with my friend the Japanese toy.
I am with him.

Mummy, Daddy can't see you,
hear you. Batteries not
included in this little boy.
(Where's my batteries?)
