Pete’s the only one in his class
To have one eye made of glass.
When playing marbles he’s quite shy
He simply pops out his eye:
When other marbles roll about
Pete’s glass eye can seek them out.
He sometimes threads it on a string:
it watches the conker swing,
Then, seeing its chance, cracks the thing.
Pete has one eye made of glass
There is no one else in his class.
