Hoping Today Will Be Better
Than Yesterday

The school bell will be ringing soon

I sure wish I didn't have to go

Because yesterday was a rough day

And to top it off it sure passed slow.

Teacher told me to stop daydreaming

To get my mind on my school books

So I bet she'll be watching me today

And giving me some stern looks.

I asked Mama if I could stay home

But her look said what she didn't say

So I'll be leaving for school soon

Hoping today will be better than yesterday.
