lyrics

Take a button and make an eye
Out of nothing we'll sew 'em in no time
Take a button and make an eye
Out of nothing we'll sew 'em what they like

I've made werewolves from carpet
Princes from Primark
Jellyfish out of old carrier bags
I've made fleece into foxes
Robots from boxes
Princesses transformed from old dusters and rags

Take a ribbon and make a wing
Out of nothing we'll sew 'em a fairy ring
Take a ribbon and make a wing
Out of nothing we'll sew 'em anything

I've made parrots for pirates
From papier mache
Butterflies out of old tablecloth pleats
I've made spiders for halloween
Blood out of gelatine
Jesus of Nazareth out of a sheet

Take a button and make an eye
Out of nothing we'll sew 'em in no time
Take a button and make an eye
Out of nothing we'll sew 'em what they like

Oh, I still remember the standing ovations / heard it before
The flowers backstage, the awards that I won / she's off again, save us!
Now I sit, like my mother, with needle and thread / time for a change
For the sake of the children the show must go on / she should be gone.
