Missing in action

  Now little Jenny's favourite cardigan is missing one of these
  It fell off just the other day and simply disappeared
  We turned the house upside down everyone was looking
  The cushions of the three piece suite were heaped into a pile
  While Uncle Jack was on his knees searching high and low
  Mum got out the Hoover and ran it into Auntie Flo, who hopped around the sitting
  room making funny noises
  The dog was heading for the door but Dad he dived and caught him and
  once old Zak was upside down and nothing inside rattled was allowed to leave the scene
  The next stop was the fire brigade but we didn't have a cat or a garden with a tree
  Now we couldn't find the shiny little blighter, so we had a cup of tea
  We tried to find another one just like the one that's lost but that is such a trying task
  there's never two the same
  Mum finally found a button but it never matched the rest and Jenny's pretty cardigan
  was never seen again
