SLOW POKE

Slow poke! Slow poke! IŽm a silly old slow poke!

 

You keep me waiting till it's getting aggravating, you're a slow poke

You wait and worry but I never seem to hurry on a slow poke.

Time means nothing to you, IŽll wait – youŽll wait. 

And then - late again - eight o'clock, nine o'clock, quarter to ten.

 

Why should I linger ev'ry time you snap your finger, little slow poke?

Why canŽt I hasten when I see the time's a-wasting on a slow poke, dear.

Why should I keep trying to change you, it's not the thing to do.

ItŽs the thing to do.

I guess youŽre happy to learn to be a slow poke, too.

 

Slow poke, slow poke, IŽm a silly old slow poke!

We keep awaiting till it's getting aggravating, what a slow poke.

We wait and worry but he does never any hurry on a slow poke.

Time means nothing to see, weŽll wait  

And then - late again - eight o'clock, nine o'clock, quarter to ten.


Why should I linger ev'ry time you snap your finger, little slow poke? Slow poke!

Why canŽt you hence when you see the time's a wasting on a slow poke, dear.

Why do you keep trying to change me, it's not the thing to do.

Then I guess youŽll have to learn to be a silly on a slow poke, too.

Slow poke, slow poke youŽre a silly old slow poke.

Slow poke, slow poke IŽm a silly old slow poke.

Slow poke!
