Ticklish Tom

Ticklish Tom

Did you hear 'bout Ticklish Tom?

He got tickled by his mom.

Wiggled and giggled and fell on the floor,

Laughed and rolled right out the door.

All the way to school and then

He got tickled by his friends.

Laughed till he fell off his stool,

Laughed and rolled right out of school

Down the stairs and finally stopped

Till he got tickled by a cop.

And all the more that he kept gigglin',

All the more folks kept ticklin'.

He shrieked and screamed and rolled around,

Laughed his way right out of town.

Through the country down the road,

He got tickled by a toad.

Past the mountains across the plain,

Tickled by the falling rain,

Tickled by the soft brown grass,

Tickled by the clouds that passed.

Giggling, rolling on his back

He rolled on the railroad track.

Rumble, rumble, whistle,roar--

Tom ain't ticklish any more.
