You won’t lag behind, because you’ll have the speed.
You’ll pass the whole gang and you’ll soon take the lead.
Wherever you fly, you’ll be the best of the best.
Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.

Except when you don’t
Because, sometimes, you won’t.

Grew three sizes that day!

The sun did not shine.
It was too wet to play.
So we sat in the house
All that cold, cold, wet day.
