Nickee Coco woke up early one Tuesday morning
As she was walking along she saw a magnificently tall invisible tree
She found the foliage covered branches
She was still asleep when nightfall came
She ran from house to house asking everyone she saw
Soon the whole town was aware of Nickee's disappearance

Everybody was looking for Nickee Coco
Mr. Temboley even shouted down the well
But he didn't hear a yell

They asked the stuttering organ grinder in the square
I hav-hav-haven't heard a thi-thing
Oh-oh-oh the poor poor poor little thing"
All the while Nickee was curled up fast asleep
Eating mangos in a dream

No longer peaceful in her invisible tree
And so the search went on
They're wondering if they'll ever find Nickee Coco
"Margaret tell me what on earth I've done
What could I have possibly done?"
Many weeks passed
They all kept searching and never did Nickee leave their thoughts.
Still sleeping soundly up in the invisible tree
After an owl translator was called in
The whole town joyously followed the owl back to the invisible tree
They all cheered when they saw her
And marched victoriously back into town where they had a huge party

We were so sad when we thought we had lost you
Because at last
We found you
