I never knew that fateful day
That I would fall upon the grass.
I couldnít skin my knee, not me,
I fell upon my ass.
There rose a bruise so bright and gay
it shone all black and blue.
I remember saying shucks and darn
and other swear words too.
I sat on ice the whole day long
and pondered on my fate
This is the first and last time
I try to rollerskate!
I walk with a limp, (a kind of drag)
to get from here to there.
My legs are tired from walking cause
I canít even sit in a chair!
Iíll be back to work before long
and finish out the week,
But please remember, when greeting me,
donít pinch my poor left cheek!
