Sometimes it can happen

when Billy has a restless night

that his legs become quite muddled

and don't get their jobs quite right!

But his friends they shrug and smile and...

If one day they go with an aching head


to the doctor to make it better

and he says to add a little salt

some mustard and some pepper!
It's the chefs leg that we see today
they realise and smiling say...

Don't be silly...
wrong leg Billy!


And if one day they ask the gardener


how to help their plants grow bigger

but instead of bringing soil and pots

he arrives with a big digger!

It's the builder leg we see today
they realise and smiling say...

Don't be silly
Wrong leg Billy!
