Jimmy Wilson had a glass eye, I could see it, And he stuttered sometimes. And he needed a girl friend night times Didn't know how to go about it. Poor Jimmy Wilson, poor Jimmy Wilson. All the boys used to tease him, I know I did it, And he was my friend, At school we were always close together. Hardly a day I didn't see him. Poor Jimmy Wilson, poor Jimmy Wilson. He used to go out for walks on his own With no-one to talk to at all. He'd walk in the park till the evening grew dark, Just feeling quite incredibly small. He was sitting in the park one Sunday evening Around about five, When along came a lady, a total stranger Wanted young Jimmy to go with her. Poor Jimmy Wilson, poor Jimmy Wilson. Well, she was so persuasive and seemed quite friendly, So he went along. And the lady who was lonely gave him tea, And she was his friend for ever after. Poor Jimmy Wilson, poor Jimmy Wilson.
