The Lost Ponytail Holder

By Emili Croft

My ponytail holder, I just had it on

It was just on my wrist and now it’s gone.

Where did I leave it? Was it stolen, was it lost

do you know how much they cost?


It seems like I get a pack every week,

oh I’m such a geek.

Ponytail holders all different colors, shapes and sizes

I find them all over like they’re prizes.

Some are blue, some are red

yes that’s what’s I said!


But of course none of those are my ponytail holders.

Mine are stretched and worn, but I love them.

They come with me everywhere I go and

they’re always there when I need them.

Then the time comes when I seem to have lost another

I guess I’ll go ask Mother.
