“You are surely grumpy,”
Is the first thing Mother said.
“You must have gotten up
On the wrong side of your bed.”

Gramps said, “When you’re grumpy,
You’ve got a rock in your shoe.”
And Gramps sure ought to know
‘Cause he’s always grumpy too.

Dad said, “If you’re grumpy,
It’s because you’ve had bad dreams.”
My folks aren’t all stupid,
It’s just the way that it seems.

They know why I’m grumpy.
It’s the way that grownups play.
They’re teasing me because
They know that school starts today!
