Why Cosmo Is Annoying By Ana

 

Why do I have to take my wellies off

when I’ve been outside?

 

Cosmo doesn’t have to take his wheels off

and no-one seems to mind when he brings

mud into the house like a big messy dog.

 

When I leave muddy footprints on the carpet

everyone shouts

ANA TAKE YOUR WELLIES OFF!

 

Well, I want to leave my wellies on.

At least when I leave muddy footprints

Mum and Dad remember I’m here.
