I’m a very tidy person, and I like to keep things clean.
In fact, I think my living room’s the best you’ve ever seen.
You won’t believe the time I’ve spent! To make it look this neat
I’ve been scrubbing all the grime and grub, and now I feel dead beat.
There were biscuit crumbs
And mouldy plums
And icky sticky chewing gums
And Lego blocks
And stinky socks
And shells and stones and sand and rocks
And balls of dust
And toasted crust
And pins all furred with bits of rust
And fairy wings
And plastic rings
And other bits of toys and things
All twisted up and bust and bent
You won’t believe the time I spent!
I’m such a tidy person, as tidy as could be,
But don’t you dare to look or stare beneath my old settee.
