Illustrated Feet

I’ve got a nickel,

I’ll share it with you.

I’ve got a pickle,

I’ll split it with you.

I have a snow cone and sweet lemonade,

Come dream with me in the cool summer shade.

I have a bicycle,

I’ll give you a ride.

I have a Popsicle,

I’ll give you one side.

But I can’t talk to strangers.

Or cross the street.

And I can’t go out in my little bare feet.
