Dawdling Maud

Change the name ‘Maud’ to something else, and this could be about one of my children.

 

Wherever we go, whatever we do,

Maud’ll always dawdle.

It takes three hours to get her shoes,

She can’t decide which top to choose.

Doesn’t she care? No time to lose!

But Maud’ll always dawdle.

 

Each step for Maud is snail-slow paced.

She drags each foot. Come on! Make haste!

Oh Maud, do you think we’ve time to waste?

But Maud’ll always dawdle.

 

She looks for ants in pavement cracks,

She scours the hedge for blackberry snacks,

Oh please hurry up! Be quick! Make tracks!

But Maud’ll always dawdle.

 

And so we just trudge on, resigned.

The slower we go, we’ll always find,

That Maud is still far, far behind,

As Maud’ll always

Maud’ll always

Maud’ll always

Maud’ll always

Maud’ll always

Maud’ll always

(See what I mean?)

JUST HURRY UP!
