Somebody is absent today.
He can't say who.
Somebody is absent, he might have
The blues.
Somebody is absent, and he knows who,
And Jon does too.
He wonders if he could so he can't so he
Won't tell who.
He wonders what the person is going to
Do, with his cough, cold, or maybe
The flu.
Why he is absent he doesn't have a clue,
He might have the measles and the
Mumps too.
He can't tell you why he is skipping
It slipped out.
