Hum You Have to Get Up

You have to get up;
I don't want to get up.
Why don't you want to get up?
I'm very comfortable where I am, thank you.

You have to go to work;
I don't want to go to work.
Why don't you want to go to work?
Because there's too much work at work, that's why.

You have to go to work to pay the bills;
I don't want to go to work to pay the bills.
Why don't you want to go to work to pay the bills?
If I pay bills this month I shan't have any money to pay next month's bills.

You have to get up;
I know, I'm getting up.
Where are you going?
I'm going to see an astrologer.

You're back, what did the astrologer say?
He said:
Today don't get up;
Today don't go to work;
Today don't pay the bills;
Have a nice day,
Today is Sunday!

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
