I’ll Do It Today

Guess what I got from the mailman today!
Well what did you get, O please tell me, I pray.
A poem from my daughter, I tell you, I say,
A poem from my daughter who's far, far away.
Now wasn't that loving and wasn't that sweet,
A poem from your daughter, O my what a treat.
It certainly was, it was certainly that,
It makes my heart thump pit-a-pit, pit-a-pat.
Well what did she say, tell me ho, tell me hey,
What did she say in that sweet poem today?
I'll tell you, I will, and I'll tell you right now,
She said that she loved me, she said I was fine,
She said she was glad that she ended up mine.
"'Tis rare girl indeed, who can say such nice things,
Who loves her old Mother, and thinks she is fine,
How wise she must be and how deep in her thought,
Yes, sweet too besides, and so loving and kind.
She's all that you say, she is all that and more,
The best that there is, she has beauty galore.
I wish I could tell her how much that I love her,
How dear that she is to her silly old mother,
But I am no poet, a poem I can't write
O try as I may, and then try as I might.
Well you can still tell her in some kind of way
And she will be happy to hear what you say.
Yes, I can do that, yes, I certainly may,
In fact I will do it, I'll do it today.
