Dressup

Clipperty clop! Clipperty clop!
Down the stairs I come,
I’ve got my mummy’s shoes on,
That’s why I  cannot run!

I’ve got my mummy’s hat on,
I’m all dressed up you see,
I think I am a princess,
Going out for tea.

I’ve got my mummy’s coat on,
It’s much too long for me.
Oh dear! I’ve tripped up on the stairs!
That bump you heard was  ME!

Joy Phillimore in The  Tiny Tots Annual, 1955.
