batteries not included lyrics – jethro tull

six o’clock in the morning
wake up by the bed
there sits a new japanese toy
and i like it

see the name on the wrapping
can’t read yet but i know
it’s made for me, lucky boy
and i want it

lights that flash, wheels that go round
digital display
fresh silicon chips to enjoy
and i need them

where’s the batteries? where’s the batteries?

sitting silent and empty
wish i could breathe life
in my friend who’s terribly still
and i like him

just like me, p’rhaps he’s hungry
six volts make him smile
and twelve volts would probably kill
how i like him

daddy, where’s the batteries
i can’t find my batteries
daddy, where’s the batteries
i cannot find my batteries

seven o’clock in the morning
they find me by the bed
with my friend the japanese toy
i am with him

mummy, daddy can’t see you
hear you
batteries not included in this little boy

where’s my batteries? where’s my batteries?
