When Charley was a little boy,
His very most delightful toy
Was a zipper.
Like a puppy and his slipper,
Charley took to his zipper.
And even when he went to school,
Charley broke the teacher's rule
With a zipper.
Like a dolphin and his flipper,
Charley played with his zipper.
And later on in Charley's life
When Charley thought to seek a wife,
It was her zippers.
Like a telescope and dippers,
Charley scoped out her zippers.
Everybody runs away
When they see Charley start to play
With his zippers.
Charley be a little hipper.
Please don't play with your zipper.
And now there's not much left to say,
But every day in every way
Charley wastes his time away
With his zipper.
Charley the zipper
Just zips and unzippers
And zips and unzippers
and the Hideous Zipper Addiction

Patrick, an author, loves scary stories. His books and short stories were published nationally. He wrote some delightful Halloween-style children's poems and asked me to turn them into songs. I heard music in the words, and Peter helped me make them come to life."
