Make the beds, bandage heads, Straighten up the room;
Wash the windows, cut the grass, See the tulips bloom.
Drive the children to school, Drive them back again.
Have the Cubs to meeting Then I clean the den.
Serve on my committee, Attend the P.T.A.
Forgot to buy the children shoes... Can't do it today.
Pay the bills, write a note, Fill the cookie jar.
Oh dear, I forgot to go and have them grease the car.
Catch up on the ironing, Scrub the kitchen floor.
Answer phone and doorbell, Need I list some more?
My pet peeve I must admit,
You surely will agree,
When someone asks, "Are you employed?"
I answer, "No, not me."
