Knit, purl, knit, purl,

give the spool another whirl,

pray I do not drop a stitch,

let me add just one more inch,

never mind – make it two

and soon I’ll have a wrap for you,

any shape, any size

in Dutch blue just like your eyes,

put it on o’er your head

or wear it as a shawl instead,

hold it tightly like a hug

or roll it out like a rug,

spread it on your bed at night

or in the closet out of sight.

He loves me, he loves me not,

doesn’t matter, I’m still caught

stuck inside a ball of yarn,

unravel me between your arms

then hold me to your face – pretend

that I can kiss your face again.

Knit, purl, knit, purl,

give the spool another twirl

and when at last we’re all unwound

I will put my needles down.
