Forgetful Jimmy

Jimmy was so forgetful

He forgot he had an exam that day.

He even forgot to have his lunch

When his mother said the table she lay.

 

At night he forgot to sleep

He never even did nap

And when he went to the toilet

He forgot to close the tap.

 

He forgot to post letters

When his mother asked him to

And when he met someone

He forgot to say ‘How d’you do?’

 

The thing he never forgot

Was to forget everything

When he was asked to sing a song

He didn’t know what to sing.

 

He forgot to study subjects

He forgot to read books

And just in his daydreams

Every minute he looks.

 

One day, his mother said to him

“Jimmy, now you don’t forget a thing!

Eating, sleeping, posting letters

And even what to sing.”

 

It was really a trick

Jimmy thought it was real.

And then, he never forgot anything

Even eating all his meals.

 

And now instead of ‘Forgetful Jimmy’

We call him to this day

And now ‘Remembering Jimmy’

Laughing we all say.
