"Lost Time" as written by Donovan Leitch and Ffrida Wolfe....
Timothy took his time to school,
(Plenty of time he took!)
But some he lost in the tadpole pool,
And some in the stickle-back brook.

Ever so much on the linnet's nest,
And more on the five-barred gate.
Timothy took his time to school,
But he lost it all and was late.

Timothy has a lot to do -
How shall it all be done?
Why, he never got home till close on two,
Though he might have been back by one!

There's sums and writing and spelling, too,
And an apple tree to climb;
Timothy has a lot to do -
How shall he find the time?

Timothy sought it high and low!
He looked in the tadpole pool
To see if they'd taken the time to grow
That he lost on the way to school.

He found the nest and he found the tree
And he found the gate he'd crossed,
But Timothy never shall find (Ah, me!)
The time that Timothy lost.

Timothy sought it high and low!
He looked in the tadpole pool
To see if they'd taken the time to grow
That he lost on the way to school.

He found the nest and he found the tree
And he found the gate he'd crossed,
But Timothy never shall find (Ah, me!)
The time that Timothy lost.

The time that Timothy lost...
