I cook and clean, I iron his shirts,
When the kids scrape their knees,
I kiss where it hurts.
Bedtime stories, homework due in,
Spinning in circles,
forget what I'm doin'.
Clean up the bath, pay all the bills,
Snuggles and Kleenex,
For the kid with the chills.
Let in the dog, put out the cat,
"No, you can't stay up late,
It's as simple as that!".
I sew up his shorts, help with her spelling,
Swift trip to the Docs,
That bump is sure swelling!
Decorations up, bake an iced cake,
Pop two Annadin,
Get shot of this ache.
Have I got five minutes,
Just a quick cup of tea?
No, next doors' dog chased our cat up that tree!
Hop in the car, a trip into town,
"Just wipe your nose,
and get rid of that frown!".
Play I spy 'til I can spy no more,
"Please move your skates
away from that door!"
I'll settle this row,
"Off you both go to bed!"
Urgh! The thought of tomorrow fills me with dread.
Tuck the kids in,
They're all ratty and wired,
"Oh, no you don't, honey. I'm WAY too tired!"
