My Week Song

My Week Song

Sunday is a holiday and I will sleep the whole day,

I will not touch the books and give them to the chooks.

Monday I won’t go to school,

Mummy says “That isn’t cool”.

Tuesday I will develop chickenpox,

I will go with mummy and plant the phlox.

Wednesday I will get swollen tonsils,

I will wear my goggle and pluck the tendrils

Thursday I will get my toes sprained,

My skin will be blue and also blained.

Friday my voice will be puny,

I will wear that skirt which is plumy.

Saturday I will go to school,

As it will be no study but playing by the pool.

Then hurray it is again Sunday,

I will again sleep the whole day.

I wrote this song and posted on my wall,

And I went out to play with my ball.

I was playing near the Pelagic,

When the waves told me go learn the magic.

I need to study as I am a good child,

I looked at the waves and smiled,

Mummy and Daddy love me loads,

I will bring them very good scores.

I love my mummy and I love my daddy,

It is for them I will study.

But mummy said otherwise,

“Study and play, which is how you will get wise”.

Now I will bring a lot of prizes,

I promise I will touch the open sky.

My friends, please learn this song,

And all of us will sing along.
