Mother duck took her seven babies for a swim;
So in the pool is when the mayhem did begin.
Mother and babies swam around and all about;
Everything was just fine until they wanted out.
Then, of course, the mother could jump up high;
But all the little babies could do was try and cry.
The mother went in to show the babies another spot;
They’d follow, she’d get out, then they’d jump a lot.
So finally back into the pool the mother would go;
Babies couldn’t get out for the water was too low.
The whole situation on us all became a strain;
So afraid the babies would be sucked into the drain.
For the mother duck got scared and flew away;
She didn’t come back until the light of day.
My daughter Gail, put a towel on deck into the pool;
Seeing those babies walk up the towel was really cool.
Watching the mother jump in and out of the pool;
And seeing her seven babies jumping was so cruel.
In fact, we felt so helpless, it was a sad sight to see;
But we finally saw them walk away as a happy family
