I don’t have much to say today
All my strength has gone away

Even just a simple feat
Walking outside on the street
Then vacuuming the dust beneath my feet
Resulted in a special treat.

Coughing, wheezing, gasping for air
Pain and panic everywhere
I try to call but no one’s there
For spring the people must prepare
I can’t find them anywhere

I know that you’d be proud of me
I try so hard to please, you see
But can’t you see what this does to me?
