Are we nearly there?

Are We Nearly There Yet?

We’re going to the seaside in my daddy’s brand new car,
I’ve been stuck in here for hours, so it has to be quite far,

Are we nearly there yet? I’m fed up with sitting still
and the smell of my sister’s nappy is making me feel ill!

I’ve eaten all my sandwiches and been sick a time or two,
Mummy keeps on yelling; and my sister smells like poo!

Are we nearly there yet? I know I’ve asked before,
But this seat is getting harder, and the belt has rubbed me raw!

My sisters poked me in the eye, and mum, I need to wee!
Are we nearly there yet, when will we see the sea?

Are we nearly there yet? O Dad please don’t let mum drive!
She will only dawdle; it’ll be dark when we arrive!

Are all these cars in front of us going to the same place?
If we don’t get a move on there won’t be any space!

Are we nearly there yet? No I don’t want to play I Spy,
And smelly Nellie next to me does nothing else but cry!

Ouch! Mum that’s my leg, O, did I kick the seat?
Well can me and smelly Nellie here have another sweet?

Are we nearly there yet? I’ve ran out of things to do,
Can’t we miss the seaside out, and visit the blooming ZOO!

I'm past my sell by date but still going strong, I love reading, gardening, writing and sketching, I live in a very small fishing town and love it. I was born in Coventry but city life was never for me, I have lived in lots of different places, but I am finally settled here (much to the relief of my husband)
