Magic silver key,
fits into my silver shoes.
I was now set free,
I now owned many sidewalks.
My new skates were a big thrill.

by the one coming in first
wins the blue ribbon
but personal best is grand

It goes from Fern Rock

That's where Philadelphians

Rivalrous family fun
Two touching lanes booked
Helped all with shoes and ball weight
Cheered good throws, soothed gutter rolls
Enjoyed fun-filled exercise
Family memories scored
