how do you feel

When you get tweedy?
My friend, you will feel really speedy
Your legs will spin, your eyes will twinkle
Your wheels will roll, your bell will tinkle.
The lights will always be so green
Because you are a tweed machine.
No door will “ope” into your path
As you pass by in tweeded scarf.
Your figure will be so refined
That all will find you just divine –
So – see you at the Li-ber-rary
Don’t be afraid! We are not scary!
We only have one want, one need,
We have the need, the need for tweed.
