What is the Time?

There I was, in bed,

Fast asleep.

My wife woke me in a panic,

“Quick, what’s the time?”

“I don’t know, I’ll find out”.

So I put the drum out the window,

Hit it loud and hard.

A window opened down the street,

“What are you doing!” a voice shouted,

“Playing a drum at three thirty in the morning?”

I pulled the drum in,

Closed the window,

And said to my wife,

“It is three thirty”.

We went back to sleep.
