Tonight we would be put to the test
As they threw us in the big machine
I wondered, would end up like the rest
Would make it out together and clean

Yet something happened which I could not guess
When I woke up you had disappeared
Never had I felt such horrible distress
Never had I shed so many tears

I thought we would grow old and full of holes
But you disappeared and took with you my soul

As they tried to pair me with similar prints
All too rough around the edges
And often entirely covered in lint
I started to build my fences

I thought we would grow old and full of holes
But you disappeared and took with you my soul

Then, on a day like any other, I stumbled onto you
With your wacky colours and your warmth I knew
That you made me feel things that couldn’t not be true
And slowly you started bringing my walls down too

You and I will grow old and full of holes
Let’s take a walk and I’ll give you my soul

Tonight we will be put the test
As they’ll throw us in the big machine

I appreciate the dapperness of penguins, and might have even written a song about it.
