Sleepy Pitcher

My daughter stayed awake all night
While visiting a friend
But now it’s well past noon, you know
This sleeping has to end

Her softball game, it starts at two
And she’s supposed to pitch
I’m worried that she won’t play well
Or be a little witch

Because I see a trend with her
When she stays up too late
Her brain which is a smart one, is
Good as an empty plate

So now she’s clumping down the stair s
Searching for her uniform
It looks like she’ll be ready, but
Dangerous as a thunder storm

All right, five minutes until we have to leave for the game.
