Oh, please let me have another half hour in bed.
It feels like the pillow is stuck to my head.

I'm cozy and I'm warm and my dreams are all nice.
I don't want to face a day of frost and of ice,

My eyes keep on closing, my brain's in a fuzz.
If I don't get up soon, I'll miss the school bus.

Why is the best sleep when it's time to arise?
I only wish now I could open my eyes.

I'm drifting again; the world's going dim;
it's the Land of Nod that I'm entering in.

Then suddenly I'm awake, with a start and a jump.
I say to myself you are a great chump.

School is no-go, at least for today.
Why is that so? Because it's Saturday-hooray.
