THE time in school is twice as long
Because I hear that bluebird's song.
He sits right out there on a tree,
And doesn't have to work, like me.

He's better dressed than I am, too.
His clean new suit is shiny blue,
The big tie in the front is red.
There's nothing on his feet, or head!

I wish I felt as good as he,
Singing and swinging on a tree!
I should, if I were climbing there
With that wind blowing through my hair!

Why can't grown people do the sums
And write big words that cramp our thumbs
And let us go out-doors and play
On every single sunny day?
