I tried for a Friday
I howled and I cried
for a Friday and
lo and behold
a Friday came just
as I got old

wait for what you wish for
and before you know it
forget what it was that you
wished for,
what am I waiting for?,

Sunrise is still a surprise to me
in that I am still around to see
a case of wait and I wished for it
which is sod’s law or even
sod’s son in-law
what am I waiting for?
