Mud is Fun

Mud on my pants
Mud on my shoes
Splashing in puddles
Cures rainy day blues

Mud on my face
Mud in my hair
Dancing in puddles
Because they are there

Mud on my belly
Mud on my nose
Playing in puddles
In my Sunday clothes

Mud on the floor
Mud on the stairs
Hiding from Momma
Who said, “Don’t you dare!”
