Marbles are big, marbles are small.
Marbles can be played in the spring and the fall.
Marbles always can roll all around,
often in places they will never be found.
Marbles come in colors of yellow and green,
blue and purple and all colors between.
Marbles in people often are lost.
Marbles are generally always low cost.
Marbles are for the young as well as the old.
A pocketful of marbles can make you feel bold.
Marbles in fountains , marbles in tanks.
Marbles are enjoyed by both rebels and yanks.
So enjoy your marbles while you still can because
When you get old you may lose them again.
