If Dreaming

If I get up now there’s plenty of time
to percolate coffee, make my best brew
I can smell it already a wafting through
I’ll have two pieces of toast, ginger and lime

a relaxing breakfast to start the day right
I’ll get to the bus-stop with time to spare
and talk to Margaret she’ll want to share
I bet that cad John took her out last night!

Margaret’s a sweetie, but he’s the wrong sort
she’s rather silly, won’t take my advice
and I know that John, and that John’s not nice
but she is so young and so easily caught!

I don’t believe it - the time’s run away!
I’ve missed my bus, what a start to the day!
