Hurry Up Blues

Hurry kids, no time to play
We're running late for school today
Got the got to hurry, got to worry blues.
Where's my list of things to do
Sally, where's your other shoe?
Got the got to hurry, got to worry blues.

I can't keep cool when I'm keyed up
Now where'd I leave my coffee cup?
Tommy, that's not your toothbrush
Oh how I hate this nervous rush!

Set the table, feed the fish
Careful now, don't break a dish!
Got the got to hurry, got to worry blues.

Chorus:
Dippity dash, lickety split
Zippity zoon, dit dit dit
Razzamotazz, frazzzaley frazz
Skiddle deed addle and all that jazz

Oh no! Come on Freddy
Its quarter to eight and you're still not ready!

Where's your homework? Where's your lunch?
Gobble that bowl of Crispy Crunch
Got the got to hurry, got to worry blues.
Wash your hands, comb your hair
The school bells ringing and you're not there
Got the got to hurry got to worry blues.

Button your coat and do it quick
Drink your juice or you'll get sick
Clean your plate, scrub your face
I swear you're moving at a turtle's pace!

My heart is beating double time
My thoughts are freaking in my mind
Got the got to hurry got to worry blues.

Chorus:
Dippity dash, lickety split ... Skiddle deed addle and all that jazz

My hands are shakin', my legs are itchin'
My pits are sweatin', my nose is twitchin'
Got the got to hurry, got to worry blues!
