This episode is called A Stick and His Boy.

Sometimes my boy is a heroic knight,
And we joust for the king and queen.

 

Sometimes my boy is a world-famous chef,
And we cook very tasty cuisine.

Sometimes my boy is a wizard,
And we cast magic spells with our staff.

Sometimes my boy is a celebrity, 
And we sign our autograph.

Sometimes my boy is a pirate, 
And we sail to where x marks the spot

Sometimes my boy is an archeologist, 
And we discover what time has forgot.

Sometimes my boy is a drummer,
And we play in a marching band.

Sometimes my boy is a conductor,
With an orchestra at our command. 

Sometimes my boy is a gladiator,
And we fight for the glory of Rome.

Sometimes my boy is a scientist,
And we map the human genome.

Sometimes my boy is a dentist,  
And we drill that rotten tooth. 

Sometimes my boy is a journalist,
With a desire to find the truth.

Then one day, I lost my boy.
I cried and ran to my mother

She smiled and said,
There’s no need to be sad.

Just go outside.
You’ll find another.
