Little Girl Getting To School

Nine o' clock she has to be right in school
Eight o' clock she has to catch her school van
Six o' clock mama wakes her up by rule
Seven o' clock she tries rise if she can

At last half past seven like a rough man
Mama heaves her bundled to the bath room
Brushing bathing finished no sooner than
Papa keeps ready food and school costume

As mama ties a ' pony' with a bloom
Papa forcing the dress and shoes so fast
Midway grandma thrusts in food with eyes gloom
Little girl is ready for school at last

Daddy daughter rush to the van spot straight
Little girl getting to school on time right
