‘Twas the week before school starts

      So prepare now to change,  

And wearing new clothing

     Will seem a bit strange!


‘Twas the end of the summer

      So what will I wear?

“A new uniform,” said Mother,

     Which doesn’t seem fair.


In some other countries

    They wear other clothes:

Tee-shirts and trousers,

    Well I would suppose.


‘Twas the week before school starts

     So off to the shop

And Mother’s voice calls us

   “Come on now, chop chop!”


The problem for children

    Is just what you’ll know.

We never stay dormant

    But continue to grow.


So last year’s school clothing

    Now no longer fits,

So it’s off to the clothes shop

    To buy our school kits.


To waste summer’s sunshine

    Seems not really cool,

But it’s goodbye school holidays

     And hello to school.
