Sleepy Sue-Ellen has nothing to do
Except yawn and then yawn once again.
She looks through the window, then falls fast asleep
And she misses the sun and the rain.
Sleepy Sue-Ellen does not go to school
For schoolwork’s not for her, so she thinks,
So she sits by the fire and slowly nods off –
And once more takes a short forty winks.
Sleepy Sue-Ellen has no time for play:
Well, it’s not what she likes, you’ll have guessed
But she watches tv, eats her dinner and then
It is time yet again for a rest.
Sleepy Sue-Ellen wake up and get out
For there’s so much to see and to do!
“Oh now go away children! I don’t want to play
For I’m not like such children as you.”
