FLIPPETY FLOPPETY WORLD

 

It’s a flippety floppety world

with wibbly wobbly trees

and dibbety dabbety fields

and a zippety zappety breeze.

 

It’s a flippety floppety world

with a dingly dangly sun

and splishety splashety seas

and happety hoppety fun.

 

Oh it’s a flippety floppety world

with a stickety stackety sky

and plippety ploppety planets

and a moon that’s a custard pie.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WE VISITED A RAINBOW

 

We visited a rainbow

at school the other day.

Every colour said hello

except for gloomy grey.

 

We visited a rainbow,

and used its arch to slide,

then when it started raining,

we used the arch to hide.

 

We visited a rainbow,

but never saw its gold.

Our teacher said it’s locked away,

but we think it’s been sold.

 

We visited a rainbow,

and now we’re best of friends,

so brought it back to live with me

until the school year ends.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NEVER!

 

Clean up your room and make it better.

“I’ll never do it, ever, NEVER!”

 

Put on your coat, just look at the weather.

“I’ll never do it, ever, NEVER!”

 

Do your sums, I know you’re clever.

“I’ll never do it, ever, NEVER!”

 

One last chance, or funfair, no!

“I’ll do them, done them, come on – let’s go!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HENRY THE HORN

 

Henry the Horn

gave out a big yawn

and woke up the trumpet next door.

 

The trumpet then stirred,

and all that was heard

was a very loud musical roar.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HOW CAN I GO TO SCHOOL TODAY

 

How can I go to school today

and leave my cars behind.

They may get sad and start to cry.

It would not be too kind.

 

How can I go to school today,

when spider’s climb my wall.

I need to keep an eye on them

in case they start to fall.

 

How can I go to school today,

there’s far too much to do.

I need to ride my bike, and run,

and shout out ‘Bum’ and ‘Poo’.

 

How can I go to school today.

my earwax is so smelly.

If it falls onto all my friends,

they’ll soon be Zombie jelly.

 

I cannot go to school today,

but I may reconsider,

if I can have a plane,

and trains, a drum, and a big digger!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I WON’T GO TO BED

 

I won’t go to bed.

It’s early yet.

The sun has hardly

broken sweat.

 

I won’t go to bed.

It’s not that late.

The stars above

are not awake.

 

I won’t go to bed.

It won’t be right

when toys are playing

half the night.

 

I won’t go to bed.

You can’t make me.

I’m a big boy now.

I’m nearly three!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

YOU CAN’T CATCH ME

 

I run and I run and I run.

I run so fast it’s lots of fun.

I’m faster than a bumble bee,

or Pixar cars – you can’t catch me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’M IN CHARGE

 

I tell my friends what games we’ll play.

‘Coz I’m in charge.

 

I tell a Bee to go away

‘Coz I’m in charge.

 

I tell my Gran what I want for tea

‘Coz I’m in charge.

 

I tell my Daddy that I need TV

‘Coz I’m in charge.

 

I tell my teacher’s that cows are red

‘Coz I’m in charge.

 

I tell my Mummy when it’s time for bed

but sometimes she’s in charge!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’VE LOST MY VOICE!

 

I’ve lost my voice.

Where has it gone?

I need it back

to sing a song.

 

I searched the clouds

and half the sky,

and looked inside

an Apple Pie.

 

I’ve lost my voice.

I fear my toys,

will be upset

by lack of noise.

 

I searched the fridge

but it’s not there.

I think it’s in a

dragon’s lair!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’M GOING TO MARRY...

 

I’m going to marry Honey,

and then Elsie, and then Poppy

someday.

But not just yet.

I’m only a boy

and far too young for that.

I will buy them

some cake

and rings

and other things

for 4 pound each,

and every year

buy happy cards

and lots of treats

like you and Mummy do.
