Day of the Test (The)

Oh Mummy I feel really ill:

     You come and feel my head.

Today’s the spelling test at school

     I’d better stay in bed.


Oh Mummy, I am very tired:

     I just can’t stay awake,

And sending me to school today

     Would be a big mistake.


Oh Mummy, listen to my cough:

                (cough cough)

     I’m better off with you.

I think I have an awful cold

     Or perhaps it is the ‘flu.


Oh Mummy, if I stay at home,

     I’ll soon be at my best,

And I’ll be feeling well again,

     If I just miss that test.
