My ears are pink and so’s my nose,

I’m blushing now, down to my toes.

I’m sure that everybody knows…

I’m terribly embarrassed!


It’s odd for me to be this way,

I hardly know just what to say,

Perhaps it’s just a crazy day,

But I’m dreadfully embarrassed.


I may just have a touch of flu,

And some amnesia hit me too,

That could explain this great boo-boo,

Cause, I’m totally embarrassed.


I’d love to hide, and just save face,

Slip away from this disgrace,

To get me back to my old place

Before anyone would know.


I could put on a little act,

 Stand tall and calm, matter of fact,

And maybe we could make a pact

To let this whole thing go.


But here I am, at last at school,

Feeling like some kind of fool,

Because I’ve broken every rule

And here’s the reason why.


My clock rang out loud and strong,

I missed the bell, I missed the gong,

And once you’re late, the day goes wrong,

And I just had to fly!


I quickly hopped right out of bed,

And threw the covers off my head,

I got to school, and someone said,

“You’re still in your pajamas!”


Sure enough, instead of jeans,

I saw superhero L.L. Beans,

And just to make the scene complete,

Fuzzy slippers donned my feet.


I blushed as I heard music start,

And rose to do my special part,

With slippers on, I shared my heart

On Parent/Teacher Day!


My mom was so embarrassed!
