I waved to the duck, but she didn’t wave back.
I said “how ya doin’?” the duck didn’t quack.
I started to leave, saying “really must go!”
and then from behind me a small voice said “Whoa!”
The duck shouted out “Please do not go,
I just have to ask, how on earth did you know?
I normally keep quiet when folk pass me by
but you were so nice I just had to reply.
I’m feeling quite lonely, the rest haven’t tarried,
I’m not very old and am quite newly married.
I was feeling quite down ‘till you came along,
Will you please join me in singing this song?”
