Timmy Tocks Wore Different Socks

Timmy Tocks wore different socks He wore them once at school The other children laughed at him And said he was a fool Timmy Tocks wore different socks One red one and one blue His friends said when one sock is red The other should be too Tommy Tocks wore different socks And neither one was pink His friends said Timmy, don’t do that For that would make us blink Timmy Tocks wore different socks Some children were unkind His friends said he was odd socks Tocks He didn’t really mind Timmy Tocks wore different socks One blue one and one red His friends said you should get some more And this is what he said The socks I’ve got are not a lot You might think that’s a shame I like odd socks, that’s why I've got Another pair the same

Good one Terry almost a tongue twister, I really thought reading down you were going to end with Timmy Tocks wearing a pair of ‘Docks’ as in boots, to cover up his odd socks, those were the days, cheers David

Thanks, David. Took a break from a ‘Freezer Mice’ sequel to offer up something…. ANYTHING! And I came up with this. Glad you enjoyed. Terry

Love it Terry, I admire people who don't conform and do their own thing. Greetings from Spain. Tom

Thanks, Andy. Been working on a massive epic (which means no-one will read it) so my output has been low of late. Glad you enjoyed this offering. Terry

Timmy Tocks had about six name changes before I found an ‘available’ name for him. Started out as Finlay Fox but that’s already out there, Nelly Knox was the same, Katy Cox, Ditto. Glad you enjoyed. Terry
