My name is David and I live on a farm.
During the school holidays
We make sure the animals come to no harm.
So I jump on the haystacks and on the tractor ride
I paddle in the little pool and down the haylage slide.
While my friends have weeks away I laugh and play all mucky
They all say, 'Oh David, we think you are so lucky!'
So please do not feel sorry that I have no holiday,
Because every day upon my farm is like a day away.
I also have reason to laugh, play and shout
Because my mum and dad take me for fantastic days out.
