A Mama's Day

It was a pretty day in May.
I sent my children out to play
And warned them not to go astray.
A mama's day!  A mama's day!

I poured myself a cup of tea
And settled down with only me
And favored program on TV.
With time to see! With time to see!

And then I heard a frightened shout,
And wondered what it was about.
"The baby's caught in water spout.
He can't get out!  He can't get out"!

Forgetting all about my show,
I ran as fast as i could go,
So fast that I was flying low.
My baby jo!  My baby jo!

jo--sweetheart
