Just like Jesus, Pinocchio had no mother, could easily float on water, and was the son of a carpenter.

Aw, what a doll!


Mister Gepetto
lived in a borghetto
(That’s Italian for “a little town”)
He worked with hard wood
carved whatever he could
his works earned him a lot of renown.

One sunny day
he felt cheerful and gay
and a puppet of wood he then made,
The puppet was alive,
it had a real drive –
it kicked and it talked and it played.

He was not just a toy –
no, he was a real boy!
Pinocchio’s the name, there you go.
Still I find it quite odd
that a man who’s this old
would build puppets with organs that grow.

Here’s another comic with that doll that’s made of wood
Pinocchio would just lie forever if he only could
