Tomorrow I’ll be good
Catch up on all my chores
Clean out every single corner
Polish windows, knobs and doors
Tomorrow I’ll work hard
My bum will never see a chair
And after all that cleaning
I’ll shower, wash and style my hair
Tomorrow I’ll write letters
To friends near and overseas
Sew on those loose buttons
Make scrumptious meals with garden peas
Tomorrow I’ll dig up all the weeds
Do accounts and solve loads of sums
Have you guessed my little secret?
Thankfully, tomorrow never comes.
