Somebody Else

posted on February 12, 2018

[112 words]

There’s a clever young guy named
Somebody Else,
There’s nothing this guy can’t do.
He is busy from morning
till way late at night,
Just substituting for you.
You’re asked to do this or you’re
asked to do that,
And what is your ready reply?
“Get Somebody Else to do that job,
He’ll do it much better than I.”
So much to do in this dreary old world
So much and workers are few,
And Somebody Else all weary and worn
Is still substituting for you.
The next time you’re asked to do
something worthwhile,
Just give this reply:
“If Somebody Else can give time and support,
my goodness, so can I!”
