The Smile Song (or "I Have Something in My Pocket!") (lyrics only)

Author and copyright status unknown.

I have something in my pocket
That belongs upon my face
I keep it very close at hand
In a most convenient place

I think you wouldn't guess it
If you guessed a long long while
So I'll take it out and put it on
It's a great big happy smile.

Version 2 of "I Have Something in My Pocket!"

I have something in my pocket
that I found behind the log.
My teacher said to put it back,
but I wanna keep this frog!
It's cool and green and slimy
and it wiggles in my hand.
I also found this wiggly worm
and a pocket full of sand
