An ode to early mornings

(Sung to the tune of piano man by Billy Joel)

It’s 5am on a Thursday morning,

The regular crowd shuffles in,

Rachel whose one and Miller whose three,

I can hear the garbage truck,

the day is about to begin.

 

Read me a story my mommy,

Read me a story right now,

I need some milk too and a dummy, 

And fit us both on your lap somehow. 

It may not be light outside just yet,

But don’t let that get you down,

Mom, can we have some toast and tea,

It’s really not too early you see,

Mummum, mumum goes the baby,

As she clearly agrees. 

Read me a story my daddy,

Read me a story right now,

I need some milk too and a dummy, 

And fit us both on your lap somehow. 

Daddy, mommy is pretending to sleep,

And I need to do a wee, 

Okay come on son let’s go to the loo,

Wait daddy I think it’s actually a poo,

No wait it’s nothing at all.

Read me a story my mommy,

Read me a story right now,

I need some milk too and a dummy, 

And fit us both on your lap somehow. 

Hey look, everyone now is awake,

And the sun is now up too,

Why are you lying in bed mom and dad,

When there are things to be done and said.
