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!
