Have you seen my glasses

Have you seen my glasses

Have you seen my glasses
I can’t find them anywhere
Put them down for a second
Comeback and they’re not there.

It’s a good job, that I have two pair’s
Buy one get one free
But I can’t find the other pair either
I’m sure they’re looking straight at me.

If I could only find them
I’d never put them down
I promise to wear them all the time
Even though they make me frown.

This is just pure vanity
I take them off, all the time
Contact lenses don’t like me
Plus age has not been kind.

Right think where you last had them
Where did you take them off
Did I put them in their case
After polishing them with a cloth.

I believe you can buy a stand
That says, put your glasses here
That will be on my Christmas list
Of that there is no fear.

Hello, is anyone helping me
Or shall I find them on my own
Something good on the Tele?
At least the dog has found his bone.

Hooray I’ve found my glasses
I’d put them on a chair
Unfortunately I had to sit on them
To find that they were there.

Well I won’t be wearing them again
Better find my other pair
I promise when I find you
I’ll treat you with great care.

Who has left these glasses here
I’ve just knocked them on the floor
Mum I’m sorry to tell you
That your glasses are no more.

I’ve found both pairs of glasses
But still can’t see a thing
Two new pair’s of glasses
Ca-ching, ca-ching, ca-ching.

Can sympathise with glasses situation. However, with me I have branched out to include pens, doorkeys, purse, mobile phone AND walkabout handset for landline!! I have shown some improvement with glasses over the last 3 years, since my dog Charlie arrived. After he had devoured a third pair I now only put them on raised surfaces. Fewer places to search.

Very funny Pat ... I keep mine on top of my head and still quite often go searching!
