The Night Before Registration
Twas the night before registration,
and all thru' the house,
not a creature was stirring, God I hope not even a mouse!
I tossed and I turned, hoping to wake up at 4,
If I missed registration,
I'd put a hole in the door!
My children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of free stamps danced in my head.
I woke and sat up to see 3:56 am on the clock,
'I'll go back to sleep,' I thought...
But just could not!
Away to the computer I flew like a flash,
I logged on as I squinted to block the bright light,
Man am I happy we've already got our flight!
My computer was so slow, wouldn't you know?
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,But a "you are registered message",
30 long minutes later as I had feared.
I'm in, I'm done, I'm going to Salt Lake,
I better go back to sleep,
With all this excitement, I better count sheep.
