from Clockwork Doll

I was a clockwork doll, but then

That night I turned round and around

And fell on my face, cracked on the ground,

And they tried to piece me together again.

Then once more I was a proper doll

And all my manner was nice and polite.

But I became damaged goods that night,

A fractured twig poised for a fall."
