Isn’t the word thingy a marvelous word
A noun that describes everything
From a person, an object or even a place
With a ‘je ne sais pas’ sort of ring
For the thingy’s a thing that could be anything
Yet a thing that by all things defined
Is a thingy – you know – a thingy, thing thing
When the name escapes recall and mind!
So let’s hear it for thingies all over the world
The nonsense we utter when words
Evade definition, instead being known
As a thingy – so quaint and absurd!
