Snow White's Day

There's a badger making breakfast

And a turtle brewing tea.

There's a duck who does my dishes

While he quacks a song to me.

There are bluebirds in the shower

And a fishie in the tub.

They're so helpful in the morning

When I need to wash and scrub.

Then a dear sweet deer will help me

When I need to make the bed,

And he'll let me hang my laundry

On the antlers on his head.

All the rabbits and opossums

Try to pitch in with the chores,

While the mousies sweep and polish

In the space beneath the doors.

All my precious woodland creatures

Fill my heart with happiness . . .

But when they decide to leave,

It's me who has to clean their mess!
