I gave a gift to Angela

To help her feel much better.

She gave it to the mailman

When he handed her a letter.

The mailman took it with him

And gave it to a clown

Who needed it to make folks laugh,

Since the circus was in town.

He left it at the bakery,

Like a cookie on a plate.

Then Jeffrey took it with him

As he went outside to skate.

He passed it on to Mary

As she rode by in a truck.

And she gave it back to Angela

Who was outside feeding ducks.

This crazy tale goes round and round—

It may last quite a while.

Good things come right back to you

When you give away a smile!
