You’ve heard of fairies Tok and Lok, now meet their cousin Brownie
Brownie was not a country sprite; in fact he was a townie
He had a quaint apartment just above the kitchen sink
Of the brick house on the corner that belonged to Mrs. Fink
The door was hidden right behind the outlet cover
It was very hard to see so Mrs. Fink could not discover
And she didn’t know that she had one very small houseguest
And Brownie never told her and she never would have guessed
That it wasn’t mice who stole the cheese or scribbled on the soap
And she never would have thought that twisty ties could be jump rope

But one day Brownie lost a shoe and he was almost caught
When Mrs. Fink discovered it and wondered quite a lot
Just where it might have come from and why it was so small
And why it had a little tag that said "made in Montreal"
Just when Brownie thought that he would surely be found out
Mrs. Fink remembered how Sam’s doll had gone without
A shoe, so she called her daughter up to tell her that granddaughter Sam
May have left behind her toy when she last visited her Gram
And so Brownie got away and was safe inside his house
And Mrs. Fink continued thinking her home contained a mouse
