Roller Skates Roller Skates Roller Skates 
I think they’re great
But who invented them 
I can tell you, his name was John Joseph Merlin
He was born September 17 ,1735
And I bet he wanted to ride them
He made them in the 1760’s in London, England
He wore them to a masquerade party
He was a good inventor
But not a good skater
His speed and direction were bad
He crashed into a mirror 
And could have set skating back for years 
Roller Skates Roller Skates Roller Skates
I think they’re Great Great Great
Roller Skates are fun 
When it’s time, you won’t want to be done
Roller Roller Roller Skates 
Roller Roller Roller Skates
I really think they’re Great
