I Can't Go Today
Sung to the tune of Que Sera, Sera

It is the first day of the month
I ask my partner, "When shall we go?
I'll do the lesson, you make the calls,"
She tells me, "I don't know."

I can't go today
I'm watching my grandkids, now
Things always come up, somehow
I am sad to say, I can't go today.

But when the next month came around
We vowed together, we wouldn't miss.
Then on the last day, my cell phone rang,
I got a call like this:

I can't go today,
My laundry's piled up on me.
I've nothing to wear, you see,
Breaks my heart to say, I can't go today.

Somehow a month or two went by
We've done no visits, not even called.
I called my partner, sent her a text
When she called back, she bawled.

I can't go today,
I've got all the cub scouts here
They've trashed my whole house, I fear
They won't go away,
I can't go today.

I baked some Christmas cookies, then
I called my partner, "Let's drop by quick."
O saw them Sunday, asked how there were that
ought to do the trick!"

I can't go today,
I must have the flu, you see
I think I'm contagious, gee
There is just no way, I can go today.

Now it's a new year and we feel
Our sisters need us, let's how we care
No more excuses, starting today-
We'll be the perfect pair!

We will go today!
I think we can have some fun
Once we get our teaching done
And our sisters say,
"Glad the came today!"
