Magic Boots



One fine day, this very day, Sam needed some boots, 
which Donald provided, 
And on his feet they landed.

Oh the magic boots, the magic boots
They run like this, and they run like that,
They ran down the field,
Through the air the soccer ball spun
Which bounced off Sam's head and started the fun.

Oh the magic boots, the magic boots
They run like this, and they run like that,
Running along
They tackled that ball free
Then Sam did some throw-ins, I think about three.

Oh the magic boots, the magic boots
They run like this, and they run like that,
The ball passed to Sam
Who ran and wove
He kicked the ball in the goal, by Jove!

Oh the magic boots, the magic boots
They run like this, and they run like that,
Sam played on fire
He was man of the match
I think he'll make an excellent catch!


A special mention to Ethan because he scored a magnificent goal and I wasn't there to see it.  It's hard to be in two places at the same time.  I think Ethan and Sam scored their goals at about the same time.  



Inspiration and Credits to Mem Fox for her incredible book of rhyme "The Magic Hat".

I love
Sam's hair. Is it a little longer at the sides? What a handsome boy.

I love your sense of humor! Came over from MMB.

My oldest's name is Sam too. Then I have a Nephi. Nope, didn't plan it that way... lol My husband's name is Ben and my mom calls him Obi-one. Your little nicknames reminded me of that:)

Have a great day!!!
