A tickle arrived on my nose,

And then it hopped off to my toes.

      I scratched and I scratched

      And it soon was dispatched

But where it went, nobody knows.

 

But later that day it returned

And what do you think that I learned?

      My tickle had been

      To visit the Queen -

And her staff had been very concerned.

 

So if you have a tickle at all -

Even one that is terribly small -

      Don’t drive it away

      For it’s likely to stray

And most likely will visit us all.
