Noddy and Big Ears – but Golliwog is Banned!
Noddy and Big Ears were out driving one day,
When they heard that Golliwog was not allowed to stay,
He’s politically incorrect they were told by their peers,
Golliwog must go; do we make ourselves clear?
Golliwog must go, but how can that be?
He is our dear friend, this just cannot be!
We have had such good times with him and his kin,
Golliwog, you stay, they said with a grin.
Weighing down harder on Noddy and friend,
Their peers chastised them with their words once again,
The powers that be say he is not good for this land,
Or the people within it; Golliwog is banned!
Golliwog is banned, now we know that you’re bad,
Said Noddy and Big Ears, (they were really quite mad),
To punish our friend, to exile him in disgrace,
Just because of his colour, the look of his face!
Fighting back harder, Noddy and Big Ears they sang,
We’ll bring you to court, the highest in the land,
We’ll tell them you are racist for denying our friend,
Our dearest friend Golliwog, and also his kin.
Aghast and bamboozled that their case it was lost,
Their peers relinquished their grip on the plot,
Okay, they conceded, Golliwog can stay,
Hurray, Noddy cheered, come on, Golly, let’s go play!
