The Robot  
The robot looked about ‘I’ll go for a walk’
But his battery failed
So it couldn’t even talk  

A robot plane had wings so that it would fly
But the battery failed
So it couldn’t even try  

The robot dog had a bark so loud it could be heard
But the battery failed
So it couldn’t say a word  

You are not a robot, can walk and talk and run
You don’t need a battery
And you can have some fun  

You can help each other And I think you will find
You don’t need a battery
To learn how to be kind
