Tiny little matchstick men

Tiny little matchstick men sitting in a row

All of you discussing, where you’d like to go

I hear you say, “away from here to somewhere far away”

I have to say quite truthfully you won’t be going today


Oh, tiny little matchstick men you look a lovely sight

You really can’t go anywhere if you tried with all your might

You see, you’re on a piece of paper and it’s begun to rain

You will now be turned to mush and not be seen again
