Every Year On April 1

Every year on April 1
The fishermen pursue some fun
They grab their lines, their poles, their bait
Eagerly they await this date.

This April Fool’s Day of every year
The very first day of April you will hear
The swoosh, the thud, the splashing about
As fishermen fish, and fish swim out.

And every year on April 1
Just as the fishermen want some sun
The clouds open up and it just pours
So the fishermen dash
To hand fish-selling stores.

Yesterday is a Goner

Yesterday is a goner
Tomorrow is coming quick
Today I’ll mind my “P’s” and “Q’s”
So that I may have my pick.

My pick of all the things
Here waiting to be done
Today I’ll do everything
Tomorrow, I’ll have some fun.

Wait a minute, won’t you?
Wait a minute now
Let’s have fun this very day
Make this one daily vow.

For tomorrow becomes yesterday
And yesterday is a goner
Today is the only day
That you and I need honor.
