Have you looked in Keith's cupboard?
You ought to.
You've never seen anything like Keith's cupboard.
Let's go over to Keith's place
and look in Keith's cupboard.

So when you get to Keith's place you say,
“Can we play with your garage?”
And he says,
“No.”
So you say,
“Can we play in your tent?”
And he says,
“No.”
So you say,
“Can we play with your crane?”
And he says,
“No.”

So you go up to Keith's mum and you say,
“Can we play in Keith's tent?”
And she says,
“Keith, Keith, why don't you get the tent out?”
“OK,” says Keith.
And he starts going over to the cupboard–
Keith's cupboard.
He opens it, and–
Phew!

You've never seen anything like Keith's cupboard.
In it
there's trucks, and garages, and tents, and cranes
and forts, and bikes, and puppets, and games,
and models and superhero suits and hats and–
and he never plays with any of it!

They keep buying him all this stuff
and he never plays with it.
Day after day after day
it all sits in Keith's cupboard.

You ought to go over to his place sometime
and have a look.
Keith's cupboard.
Phew!
