"The Man in the Moon

The Man in the Moon came down,
Heigh, ho,
He tumbled out of bed.
He wasn't ready for sleep,
Oh, no,
'Something is wrong', he said,
'A bed in the moon is nice,
Ho, ho,
But harder than it may seem
When teeth aren't cleaned at night -
You know,
With Ribbon Dental Cream.'
We gave him a tube, we did,
Tra, lo,
He thanked us much and said,
'Now I can sleep at night,
Heigh, ho,
With clean teeth in my head.'
Good night to you, my Dears,
By, lo,
I'll go to bed and dream
Oh health that comes from use,
Just so,
Of Ribbon Dental Cream.

Moon Man says:-

So many mothers and fathers like to keep their teeth clean and bright with Colgate's Ribbon Dental Cream, that it is no wonder boys and girls ask for this delicious dentifrice to use on their own tooth brushes.

If you want a new little book, just ask for 'Baby's Own Testimonial', and we will send it to you without charge."
