Gnash, gnash, gnaw, gnaw,
Where’s my toast, I need more
A thick layer of creamy butter, like rain drizzling down the gutter,
POP! Goes the toaster
CRASH! Goes the plate
NIBBLE, NIBBLE goes the mouse, and it’s almost half past eight!
School’s going to start and I will still be here,
With the toaster, the mouse, the plate and the clock that’s ticking half past eight!
I won’t be there, I’ll be here
Late for school, tick-tock in my ear!
The bell will RING! And I’ll be late,
They’ll do the register at half past eight!
I won’t be present, I’ll be here,
The bell will RING! Right in my ear!
